About the Author

Zandy Alexander, author of ten novels and a poetry compilation, is also a session keyboard player. Born in the UK, he was based first in London, then Rome, before relocating to manage a multi-media studio in Montreal. In his earlier years he had attended UCS school in London, where he had shared the English class with Ed Vulliamy (later journalist, Guardian and Observer newspapers), Richard Morrison (later classical music editor for the Times newspaper), and Shayne Fontayne, (later session guitarist with Crosby, Stills and Nash). At that time he formed various music bands with Paul Gilroy, (later professor of 'black Atlantic diasporic studies') and John Michael McKenzie, (later session bass-player for Bob Dylan, Tina Turner and David Bowie). After leaving school he taught English in Kenya, then attended Goldsmiths University studying fine art. While in the UK he mixed with many other writers, Salley Vickers, Ian Carr (musician and writer), Brigit Barlow, Charlie Gillett, Victor Kiernan, Nicolas Gillett, Rosie Boyt and her father the painter Lucien Freud. In New York he would visit Norman Fruchter, author and film-maker, and Rashied Ali, the percussionist of John Coltrane. From 2001 he began writing books, continued recording music, played a solo piano residency at the Stash restaurant, and also joined the writers' group of Faye Porter. In recent years his books have been discussed in the radio programs of Stanley Asher and Stuart Nulman and are on sale at many physical and online stores (occasionally under the pen-name 'Brother Xanadu'). Future plans envisage a film of his book 'Arcania', a further novel and a second poetry collection. Further information at Worldgig.com.
