Roger Garfitt reads from his memoir,The Horseman’s Word

Saturday, 9 February 2013

The Horseman’s Word is described in Metro as “a pungently beautiful piece of writing” and hailed by John Burnside in the Guardian as “a superb achievement.” It begins with a haunting evocation of a country childhood and ends as two star-crossed lovers in the 1960’s add their own wild tale to ‘the troubadours’ chronicle’.
