Frederic Raphael is the author of 20 novels and several essay and story collections. His best-known novel, The Glittering Prizes, was made into a television series which won him the Royal Television Society Award for Writer of the Year. He also received an Oscar for his screenplay for the 1965 film Darling. His latest book A Thousand Kisses started life as a BBC Radio Three feature in 2010 and starring Geoffrey Palmer as the narrator, with Dan Stevens as Catullus. Yet the origins of the book go much further back – right to Frederic’s schooldays when he first conceived the idea of a novel of the poet’s life.David Pryce-Jones
