Nick Papadimitriou is an old friend and long-time imaginative-intellectual collaborator of mine, I consider his book Scarp to be one of the finest contributions to contemporary writing about place and psyche. If you’d like to get a feel for the man and his methodology, have a look at John Rogers’s film about Nick’s life, The London Perambulator. As you’ll see, Nick hasn’t exactly dropped out – but he’s never dropped in; and conventional publishing deals are consequently elusive. If you’d like to fund a major creative talent, please visit Nick’s Patreon fundraising page.
