Launch — Jonny on a Chorizo

You are invited to the launch of Jonny on a Chorizo by Paul Haworth at X Marks the Bökship in London on February 15th and at San Serriffe in Amsterdam on March 7th, 2013. Jonny on a Chorizo is the Finale to the Silk Handkerchiefs trilogy and was published by TRUE TRUE TRUE

No to spoilers: Jonny on a Chorizo is a book of surprise and adventure. Carrying the reader on a joyous ride through London – its pearly queens, crushed dreams, bashment, blue jeans, scenes of romance in Crowlands – towards a heartfelt climax. Une fin véritable to a trilogy which began with the publication of Silk Handkerchiefs in 2009.”
