I've been working over the last few months on a piece of non-fiction.

I have written about the films of Pedro Almodovar.  It is a personal appreciation; I have been following his movies for thirty years and felt it was time to ask myself exactly what it is that I see in his films, what is my rapport with him, what about the sequences that make me feel very uncomfortable?

The result is a 15,000 word 'essay' in nine chapters with three appendices.
