On Friday (24/07/2009) afternoon I interviewed the writer Dave Tomory, author of A Season in Heaven: True Tales from the Road to Kathmandu – to find out why he wrote the book and whether he had any tips for me with this web site.
As a diligent historian Dave counselled me to read Studs Terkel and work on strict plot lines. Study oral history and be disciplined. He seemed to be enjoying himself.
Here he is with Rudyard Kipling on the wall behind him.
“I told them, I don’t need your real name, but I do want your real story”.
