We’ve just spent four days in Lamu with a team from Harper’s Bazaar who are writing an article on my husband, Frank Pope, to publicise his book Dragon Sea (Penguin). The hardback, first published in the USA, will be launched at the 2007 Hay Book Festival, UK. The book will shortly be available in paperback.
It was a pleasure to work with my photographer aunt, Mirella Ricciardi, on the photo shoot. She has an exhibition of platinum black and white prints of her 1960’s Vanishing Africa series at the Michael Hoppen gallery, Jubilee Way, King’s Road, London, and I highly recommend it.
