Although not with Eventispress we would like to congratulate Nigel Lesmoir Gordon on the launch of his memoir ‘Behind Open Doors’
This is Nigel’s email to us:
“The launch went swimmingly, Diana. We had a full house, which included Rupert Sheldrake, Anthony Stern, David Cammell, my brother and his wife and Mike Horovitz. Also many other old Cambridge friends and some new ones.
A jolly fine time was had by all and the books flew off the table.”
Author Nigel Lesmoir Gordon is launching his biography, compiled by Ingrid Maclean. It tells the story of Nigel’s colourful life as a young man fully immersed in flower power age of the 1960’s right up to the present.
Behind Open Doors will be published by RESONANCE BookWorks, who are holding the launch of Nigel’s biography at the offices of the BROADCASTING, ENTERTAINMENT, COMMUNICATIONS AND THEATRE UNION
373-377, Clapham Road, London SW9 9BT
Tuesday 6th November 2018
17:30 (for 18:00) to 20:00
Nigel will be 75 on the day of the launch
‘You’ll doubtless recall that Luke Howard wrote some music a while back to accompany me at book signings and presentations for Life is Just… I recorded him playing the suite in St Swithun’s church, Sandy a coupla weeks ago. Here’s the Vimeo link so you can watch it:’
A new review of The Keeper of the Faith : “I have just finished ‘The Keeper of the Faith’. It is a very personal book – all about the author’s experience, knowledge, passions, imagination and ultimate goal. The Vietnam section is excellent and could have made a book on its own. The ‘Keeper of the Faith’ is the right title. We are all trying to keep the faith through the vicissitudes of life and the struggles with our individual self.”
Thanks for the update Nigel. What a wonderful thing to have a piece of music composed for one of your books!
Here’s a fantastic review for Life is Just by Nigel Lesmoir Gordon.
“This story brilliantly captures the mood of the time – putting the reader ‘front and the centre’ of an innocent time in history that, only now, do we realise was the beginning of a huge cultural change that swept through the Western world. This was such an enjoyable read!
Author Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon’s fourth novel is called The Keeper of the Faith. Eventispress are publishing it on 30th April 2017.
This is the back cover book blurb:
“A voyage of self-discovery, violent bloody combat, redemption and romance.
Vietnam 1968. A US Marine platoon, led by Tristram, 8th Earl of Oundle, is choppered into the wrong jungle location and left outside radio range, face to face with The Vietcong. The ensuing relentless frenzy of death and destruction carries Tristram to India, into a Benedictine monastery and finally to remotest Scotland in his search for truth, salvation and love.”
“I’ve read all of NLG’s fiction books and can recommend all of them. NLG’s books have an accessible charm all of their own. His characters have depth and are all believable. Carefully researched anecdotes from maths to mysticism. The books are fast paced reads that are hard to put down. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself in NLG’s creative world. I feel better for having read them. Tom Rust. Musician.”
Being an encouraging and friendly publishing cooperative here at Eventispress we would like to share in the news of one of our authors. Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon celebrates the launch of his next novel, A Glass of Two Milks. (even though we did not publish it ourselves)
A GLASS OF TWO MILKS
It is the sequel to Nothing and Everywhere, although it is set far in the future in 2030 and is described as an adventure, action thriller.
What a colourful cover!
Nigel has published it under his own film and book company Fractal Fun and we wish him all the best with it.
