Jerry Springer and me and Dave McKean.

Left Ireland this morning, and flew in to Heathrow. Meetings. Saw JERRY SPRINGER THE OPERA tonight, with Dave McKean. Julian Crouch, the associate director/designer met us afterwards, and told us all the cast who were off sick, and all the things that went wrong, or could have been better if the actors hadn't got flu, and we said "but it's quite marvellous", which is really is. Hilarious, blasphemous, clever, magnificently sung and altogether a delight. See it, if you're in London in the next couple of months (tickets aren't cheap, though, although I noticed ticket touts outside just before it started).

Hello Neil,

Sorry to say, but Gomez Gallery is officially closed. Your readers should instead contact the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in California regarding the purchase of McKean Photographs:
All the best,
Lisa C. Hoang

Thanks for the info.

My sister & I were at the comic con in San Diego & went to all your panels & signings. We heard you read Crazy Hair & I instantly fell in love with it. When I got home I told my best friend about it but I couldn't capture the heart of the poem. Then a couple of months ago you did a reading in San Jose, which is near where we live & I took my friend to hear you. Just like I thought he would, he also fell in love with it. We have a very hard friendship & are not talking at the moment, Which is killing me & I think him too, so I would like to give him something that would make him happy & I know Crazy Hair would. But the book doesn't come out for a long time, so I tried looking on line to see if I could find it printed somewhere, didn't have any luck. Wondered if you had any ideas or could e-mail it to me. Thanks for coming up with Crazy Hair it is an amazing poem that I will love seeing in book form. Lor lor

It won't be out as a book until 2005 some time -- but Crazy Hair will be on the next Harper Childrens audio CD I'm doing, which will be out mid 2004: it'll contain WOLVES IN THE WALLS, THE DAY I SWAPPED MY DAD FOR TWO GOLDFISH, CINNAMON and CRAZY HAIR.
