The Eye of Horus
Peter's Bio
The Eye of Horus


An unreliable personal myth intersected with real dates in history

Born in 1962, less than two hours pony ride from the home of the pork pie

Age 1-7 Raised in an unheated house on 150 acres of East Midlands clay

Age 7-13 Banished to a boarding school in Northamptonshire

Age 13-18 Relocated to similar in Shakespeare’s own county

1981-4 The student. Off to Devon on the pretext of Geography. More time spent gaining intimacy with local geography than that of books or lectures.

1984-94 The romantic years. Travelled a bit, drove a taxi, installed double-glazing, scampered on the rocks, wandered the countryside with a camera in hand, attempted to self-educate but became preoccupied with Sigmund Freud and when things got really intense caught a nasty dose of SD (‘Shakespeare doubt’). Wrote the great Freud novel. Had the great Freud novel rejected by some of the finest publishing houses in the realm.

 

 

1994-2005 Family matters. Packed my bags and went off in a sulk to Constantinople. Taught English, fell in love, got married on the billows of the Bosphorus, went south and started a family beside the sunny Mediterranean sea.

2005-20 Money matters. Decamped to the Emirate of Sharjah on the Arabian Gulf, where the streets are paved with gold (of a sable hue), to seek my fortune and a cure. Taught (teaching?) English in a little Academy. Still seeking the said streets (sense of geography none the best) and still distempered with the Shakespeare itch.
