Michael Smith

Michael Smith is an old friend and has appeared twice at Book Slam before; albeit so long ago that any material record must be etched Lascaux-style on the walls of a Royal Oak cavern (tavern?). Since those prehistoric days, Michael has gone on to greatness as journalist, broadcaster, and author of ‘The Giro Playboy’ and ‘Shorty Loves Wing Wong’. His latest book, ‘Unreal City’, based on his own short film ‘Lost In London’, is a collaboration with the legendary DJ and producer, Andrew Weatherall, and a flaneur’s eulogy to the capital’s backstreets and shadowy corners.
