If Nick Drake Came to My House

Summary

What if you had the chance to tell your hero just how much they meant to you?

If Nick Drake came to my house
and knocked upon the door
I’m sure I’d be more happy
than I’ve ever been before…

In If Nick Drake Came to My House, Mackenzie Crook – the creator of Detectorists and Worzel Gummidge – explores the power of art to impact our lives, expressed through an imaginary visit from the late, great singer-songwriter. A tender homage to a classic book by Joan Gale Thomas, Crook’s first book for adults is infused with his characteristic warm humour, both in the story and his beautiful illustrations. It’s a book for anyone who has ever wished they had the chance to tell their hero how much they meant to them.
