Laura Del-Rivo, one of the first female writers of the Beat generation, will talk to Cathi Unsworth about the dark, Pinteresque stories she’s currently working on. They beautifully capture the area around Portobello Road with its colourful characters, and are extremely intriguing.
Laura Del-Rivo’s debut novel The Furnished Room, which according to the Guardian is ‘an evocative taste of black-coffee blues’, was published in 1961, and filmed in 1963 by Michael Winner as West 11. Laura runs a designer tights stall on Fridays & Saturdays at Portobello Market. More information is available from http://hollandparkpress.co.uk/magazine_detail.php?magazine_id=243&language=English.
