Non-Fiction

My critical studies of the work of Peter Gill, who gave me my first job in the theatre, and the music of my father, David Owen Norris, are published by Seren.

I’ve also written about writers and artists for the Guardian, Unherd, Faber and Faber, Nick Hern Books and British Art Studies, among others; and about places and the cultures they produce for publications including the Financial Times, the Sunday Times and the Observer. A selection of my recent work can be found below.
