Very much enjoying the book and have nearly finished it. I want more! Some great writing from the heart and soul. Your characters are just excellent. Like the one about driving in the lanes a lot. But sometimes, always, never is my favourite.

Got my book, “Smoke and Other Tales”, by the great Gerry King + a model car destined for an assemblage. Having read Will Self’s glowing intro,I concur this is a wonderfully written book, full of little treasures which instantly transport me back and forth in time – Well done Gerry King, and for those who would like a copy, I believe Foyles stock it, but Gerry will put me right on this. Excellent!

Eh, Gerry King
Gerry- I loved Smoke, and plan to start reading again, in a loop possibly, until I feel I haven’t missed, or rushed, any of your acute observations. With the months that have passed in an odd daze for me this year, your tales bump-started my memory of other facets of Vix that lived before Nick. I applaud your wordsmithing, you are a true master- but it is the content of your gaze that awakened my sense of self, and seedy life seen, along with the West Country oddities, for which I also have a passion. Thank you Gerry- your life may not quite look the same after this offering. I am humbled and thankful. Vix x

Jackie Vans-Colina Gerry King, I picked up your book last night, and to be honest I could not put it down. It is evocative brilliant writing and observation. Pepys comes to mind…..makes me want to visit your area in London before it disappears. The places I know came back from the ashes………..can’t wait to get back to it today……
