Overview

Meet WILLIAM (WAN.W) WANDSWORTH, portrait painter extraordinaire, whose diverse backgrounds for his carefully selected subjects (and to their cost) vary from a converted country barn, a startlingly 'reinvented' and 'mechanised' chrome and mirrored 14th century Italian castle, a refurbished Victorian candle factory and last but not quite least, an eerie cemetery where clandestine midnight assignations could and do go horribly wrong.
Added to this bizarre palette is a vibrant ...

Overview

Meet WILLIAM (WAN.W) WANDSWORTH, portrait painter extraordinaire, whose diverse backgrounds for his carefully selected subjects (and to their cost) vary from a converted country barn, a startlingly 'reinvented' and 'mechanised' chrome and mirrored 14th century Italian castle, a refurbished Victorian candle factory and last but not quite least, an eerie cemetery where clandestine midnight assignations could and do go horribly wrong.
Added to this bizarre palette is a vibrant clashing of cocks, personalities and multi talents when the larger-than-life artist crosses paintbrushes with the likes of ruthless interior designer HARRY HUMPHRIES and boy wonder pop idol TOMMY TYLER.
Aiding and abetting WILLIAM in his determination to become 'a legend in his own time' is his hand-picked coterie comprising the sinister dwarf duo, PAUL and NELSON, the olfactory major domo SKIDS along with his bête noir, the rapacious RUFUS, plus the dark, dubious PRINCE ALBERT.
An innocent victim caught up within the artist's ruthless ambitions is the long-suffering MIC SANDFORD whose infatuation with the aforesaid HARRY sees situations ranging from loss of body parts and even a soul or two.
Prepare for a fast, twisted rollercoaster ride - part scenic and part terrifying - of jealousies, perversions and violent revenge but always within the presence of the darkest of humour. As with WILLIAM'S nemesis PAUL GAUGUIN - the original PAUL.GO - this reincarnation is an acquired taste; for some a feast of unsavoury delights and for others a banquet of despair.

Meet the Author

Robin Anderson, an internationally
known author and interior designer was born in
Scotland and brought up in the former Southern
Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and South Africa.
Before attending Rhodes University (the Oxford of
South Africa) he hosted his own radio programme
in Rhodesia (‘The Golden Voice of Teenage Half
Hour!) and worked as a cub reporter on ‘The
Bulawayo Chronicle’ during his gap year.
Leaving South Africa, he spent the early
Sixties working with interior design companies in
Paris, New York and London. He set up his own
design company in London in 1970. Although
interior design had been his first interest, the designer never stopped writing.
Nowadays he makes numerous television appearances and is a regular guest on
selected radio programmes, gives regular lectures on his writing.
His first novel, REGINA, A NOVEL OF SOME EXTREMES, was
published in 1998. The novel gives a salacious look ‘behind the scenes’ of the
glamorous but bitchy and competitive world of interior design, following the path
of the unpleasant but talented Reginald Forbes as he cuts a swathe through the
lives of his many unsuspecting victims.
Though London-based, the author travels extensively and the benefits of
this are apparent in the various settings to his books. The Amazon, the Yucatan,
Borneo, Myanmar, China, Russia, Japan, Sri Lanka, India, Egypt, Morocco,
Kenya, Australia, The Maldives, Mauritius, Central Europe, Canada, North and
South America plus the majority of the Caribbean Islands have also been visited.
He has walked the Inca Trail in Peru; climbed Mount Kinabulu (Borneo) and
Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania).
The author is a strong believer in the protection of endangered species.
In 1959 he took part in ‘Operation Noah’ which involved the rescue of hundreds
of animals from the rising waters of the new Kariba Dam built across the mighty
Zambezi River in the north/western part of Zimbabwe.
He is also the proud ‘foster parent’ to four Orang-utans living at the
famous Orang-utan Sanctuary in Sepilok, Borneo plus two elephants, Marlene
and Marlon, who live happily on a ranch in Zimbabwe.
