My friend Catherine Anyango who you may know as the designer of The Real Tuesday Weld artwork and maker of wonderful films such as this has just had her first book published.  It is a graphic novel version of Conrad’s Heart of darkness and it is very, very good.

I confess I haven’t read the original novel myself – just couldn’t make headway up that awful river but I feel as if I know it through repute and because of Apocalypse Now.  So, it has been a pleasure – albeit a dark one – to read it now in this way.

I really recommend it – as do several other people.  Antique Beat has a limited number of first edition copies signed and dedicated by Catherine.
