Tom is a writer based in London. we visited him in the great arthur house, a modernist former social housing project near the Barbican, where he lives.
Tom talks about his library, in particular his passion for Tintin, Finnegan's Wake and Moby Dick, of which he made a large-scale drawing, detailing one of the chapters in the novel (the lea shore). He talks us through the drawing, which discusses the structure of the writing as well as connects it to prevalent ideas in postmodernism and his own work, such as repetition and the event.
