White Oak: Black Water

Great passion leads

To abstraction

W.B. Yeats

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Desire is

not there or

then but in

remembering

Song of the Arid Orange Tree

 

4a605c903-3411-485b-a6d0-e756956cfa1

Woodcutter, woodcutter
Cut me from my shadow,
Free me from the burden
Of seeing myself barren.

Why must I live amid these mirrors?
The sun looks down askance
While night comes out to mock me
With every single star

4-1-11

But living without reflection
I'd dream the ants and hawks
Cover my boughs like foliage
And sing in my leaves like birds.

Woodcutter, woodcutter
Cut me from my shadow,
Free me from the burden
Of seeing myself barren.

arid-11

Live Tweeting

Over the last few years I've created some attention with my live coverage of the phone hacking trial in London, the most expensive and longest concluded criminal trial in British history. There are various accounts and articles about this on the web, including a radio play. My Twitter feed can be found here, and a collation of evidence from the trial, and all my live tweets, can be found at my Fothom Wordpress blog. There's also a Flipboard magazine and a Facebook Page. My Klout ranking is here.

More Journalism and Books

Various journalistic articles of mine are scattered throughout the web. There's some kind of portfolio at Muckrack. The most extensive reporting is for the Daily Beast and Newsweek, but there's more at the New Statesman, the New Republic, Aeon etc. I have two non fiction books published in the last year: The Fall of the House of Murdoch, available through Unbound or Amazon, and Beyond Contempt: the Inside Story of the Phone Hacking Trial, available via Canbury Press or also on Amazon. I am currently contributing to a new site for open source journalism, called Bellingcat, and advisor (along with Sir Harry Evans and Bill Emmott) to an exciting new crowdfunded journalism startip Byline

Getting in Contact

My generic email is my first name at peterjukes.com. That should get through to me pretty quickly. My Linked In profile is here. For non journalistic inquiries, for television stage and film, contact Howard Gooding at Judy Daish Associates. Examples of my television work can be found on IMDB. This links to the site for my forthcoming musical, Mrs Gucci. My radio plays can be found in various audiobook formats on Amazon and elsewhere.
