Join Alan Edwards at the V&A for an after dark talk with Tony Parsons, one of NME's "hip young gunslingers" of the 1970s chronicling the punk movement who went on to become one of the UK's most successful authors and journalists.
Tony Parsons is a British journalist broadcaster and author. He began his career as a music journalist on the NME, writing about punk music. Later, he wrote for The Daily Telegraph, before going on to write for the Daily Mirror, GQ, and most recently The Sun on Sunday.
He is the author of the multi-million selling novel, Man and Boy (1999). Parsons had written a number of novels including The Kids (1976), Platinum Logic (1981) and Limelight Blues (1983), before he found mainstream success by focussing on the tribulations of thirty-something men. Parsons has since published a series of best-selling novels – One For My Baby (2001), Man and Wife (2003), The Family Way (2004), Stories We Could Tell (2006), My Favourite Wife (2007), Starting Over (2009) and Men From the Boys (2010).
As CEO of The Outside Organisation, Alan Edwards has represented all time great entertainment legends like David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, Prince, The Who, Barbra Streisand, Spandau Ballet, P Diddy and Sir Paul McCartney. He handled the PR coverage for both Michael Jackson’s “This is It” launch and his subsequent untimely death.
