A clue

"What did you say your new book is called?" people say to me. "Zulu's Pedals?"

"No," I say. "Zuzu's Petals. Z-U-Z-U apostrophe S, space, P-E-T-A-L-S."

"Who is Zuzu? Is she the woman in the book?"

"No. It's an allusion to something in a film."

"What are you on about?"

The poster on the wall of my newly pretty, pristine study gives you a clue.

(The hardback comes out in May, but you can pre-order it now on with a generous price reduction. will be onstream soon.)
