Fame at Last

In 2015 a character in a new novel was based on me! The BBC’s Arts Correspondent Rosie Millard published her first novel, The Square,featuring a colourful group of characters living in North London. One of them, Philip Burrell, turns out to be based on me, not thanks to him being 68 and living with a Russian beauty, but because he sculpts replicas of famous golf holes. His are temptingly artistic ‘simulcra’, made from wood, clay and steel, produced with the help of a young lad from a nearby council estate, and sold around the world for a fortune.
