Just published: HUNTERS IN THE SNOW (Cornovia Press). My fourteenth novel, and my first for fourteen years. It is set in Vienna just before the First World War.

There will be a reading/signing at Waterstone's, Truro, at 7pm on January 27 2015. It will coincide, incidentally, with my 80th birthday.

Available now, my latest verse collection, 'Mrs English and Other Women' (Francis Boutle Publishers, £9.99). Based on erotic memories, this collection is in essence an erotic-emotional memoir. A brief quote:
'But sex and love can get confused, alas;
though neither a rock-climber nor a brawler,
I've clung on to the Eiger, the north face;
jealous and drunk, I've punched like Norman Mailer...'
(From 'Fug')

Anyone eager for a signed copy, please contact me. Don't be put off if Amazon implies it's out of print. It isn't. Go to the Francis Boutle website.

I can be heard reading some of my poetry on the Poetry Archive. poetryarchive.org/poet/d-m-thomas. A download of my 50-minute reading for the archive should soon be available from the Archive.

An exhibition of art based on my novel The White Hotel, entitled THE WHITE HOTEL, is being shown at the Gimpel Fils Gallery, 30 Davies St., London W1K 4NB, from July 10 - August 22.

A film on the life of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, based on my biography, is underway. The director/screenwriter is Cyrus Nowrasteh, whose previous films include the overwhelmingly powerful drama 'The Stoning of Soraya M'.
