by James Rowland


Songs of Friendship is a storytelling cycle. They are James' stories of the ridiculous, sublime muddles that have defined his life with his best friends.

Team Viking charts the course of his lifelong friendship with Sarah and Tom, and what happened when Tom was diagnosed with incurable heart cancer.

In A Hundred Different Words for Love Sarah gets engaged at the same time as James meets someone he really likes.

Revelations is James' account of being around for Sarah and her partner Emma as they take the huge step of becoming parents (and the small matter of his donating sperm for the baby).

The stories are about growing up, grief, falling in love, life and death. Also lots of jokes and bums and stuff.
