Product Description
From comedy legend Andy Hamilton comes this consistently hilarious and brilliant debut novel bursting with satire, wit and even a little heart.

Kevin Carver is a household name. A popular TV soap star, he’s coasting through life in the same semi-detached, slightly smug way he’s always done. But when he dumps his much-too-young-for-him girlfriend in the same callous way he’s come to treat those around him, he makes the first in a series of mistakes.

One poor decision leads to another and, as Kevin wades deeper into a moral grey area, things go from bad to very much worse. The national treasure finds himself the subject of vitriolic press attacks, a police investigation, and so much public loathing he begins to wonder if he has any chance of receiving justice. As the line blurs between his own life and that of the character he plays on TV, Kevin must face the consequences of his actions if he is ever to right his sinking ship.

The Star Witness is the story of one self-regarding man’s descent into disgrace and his journey back to join the human race. A pin-sharp satire on the shallows of modern media culture and the dysfunctional relationship we all have with the idea of ‘celebrity’, it will keep you laughing, cringing and guessing until the very last page.

Outnumbered creator Andy Hamilton: from my fictional family to a real-life impersonator - Telegraph.co.uk

he man behind ‘Outnumbered’, Andy Hamilton, tells Jasper Rees how an impostor planted the seed for his first novel Andy Hamilton has been making us laugh for 40 years. He wrote his first joke on the radio in his early twenties, has regularly been satirical on The News Quiz and observational on QI. For 20 years, he has played the Devil in his Radio 4 philosophical comedy Old Harry’s Game. The Nineties series Drop the Dead Donkey featured up-to-the-minute gags from the news headlines that were parachuted into the script. And then there was Outnumbered, the much-loved, semi-improvised BBC sitcom about the chaos of parenting. ne episode features a wonderfully downbeat measure of child-rearing success: “If they get to 18 and they’re still alive and not in prison, then you’ve probably done a decent job. ” When Outnumbered makes a welcome one-off return this Christmas, nearly three years on from when viewers last clapped eyes on them, neither Jake, Ben nor Karen will be dead or in prison. “The first reaction will probably be, ‘My God, the kids are huge now. ’” says Hamilton. The second reaction will be the one the writers have been getting since the series started in 2007: “I reckon you must have cameras in our house. “I remember writing a scene with Guy where Karen had been knocked down. The two parents start reminiscing about the number of times they’ve managed to maim their children. Me and Guy pooled our experiences – I left our eldest behind on an island, and put that in. ”. he hope is to turn the show into a kind of family sitcom version of Boyhood, the garlanded feature film that Richard Linklater shot over 10 years. “Our plan is to pop in every couple of years and see how the family is getting on. You learn not to think too far ahead, but who knows. Many years down the line there’ll be an episode where Karen becomes a grandmother. ” Hamilton’s comedy has always commuted between television and radio, script-writing and performing. But this month he also joins the long line of comics who have turned to fiction. Though chiefly fiction, the book has its roots in reality: its germ was Hamilton’s discovery in the early Nineties that someone was borrowing his identity. “We’d done a Drop the Dead Donkey recording,” he remembers.

  • Lee Konitz

    University of Michigan Press. 2016. ISBN: 0472032178,9780472032174. 284 pages.

    "Meticulously researched, detailed and documented, this long awaited overview justly establishes Konitz as one of the most consistently brilliant, adventurous and original improvisers in the jazz tradition--a genius as rare as Bird himself.” --John Zorn "Hamilton’s work may well mark the inception of a format new to writing on Western music, one which avoids both the self-aggrandizing of autobiography and the stylized subjectification of biography.” --The Wire "An extraordinary approach to a biography, with the man himself speaking for extended sessions. The main vibration I felt from Lee’s words was total honesty, almost to a fault. Konitz shows himself to be an acute observer of the scene, full of wisdom and deep musical insights, relevant to any historical period regardless of style. The asides by noted musicians are beautifully woven throughout the pages. I couldn’t put the book down--it is the definition of a living history.” --David Liebman The preeminent altoist associated with the "cool” school of jazz, Lee Konitz was one of the few saxophonists of his generation to forge a unique sound independent of the influence of Charlie Parker. In the late 1940s, Konitz began his career with the Claude Thornhill band, during which time he came into contact with Miles Davis, with whom he would later work on the legendary Birth of the Cool sessions. Konitz is perhaps best known through his association with Lennie Tristano, under whose influence much of his sound evolved, and for his work with Stan Kenton and Warne Marsh. His recordings have ranged from cool bop to experimental improvisation and have appeared on such labels as Prestige, Atlantic, Verve, and Polydor. Crafted out of numerous interviews between the author and his subject, the book offers a unique look at the story of Lee Konitz’s life and music, detailing Konitz’s own insights into his musical education and his experiences with such figures as Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, Warne Marsh, Lennie Tristano, Charles Mingus, Bud Powell, and Bill Evans. Andy Hamilton is a jazz pianist and contributor to major jazz and contemporary music magazines. He teaches philosophy, and the history and aesthetics of jazz, at Durham University in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the book Aesthetics and Music (Continuum 2007). Joe Lovano is a Grammy Award-winning tenor saxophonist. His most recent album is Streams of Expression.
