About the Author
Peter Stafford-Bow was born into a drinking family in the north of England in the mid-1970s. A precocious, self-taught imbiber, he dropped out of university to pursue a career in alcohol. After managing several downmarket London wine merchants, he became a supermarket buyer, a role which kindled his life-long love of food, other people's hospitality, and general gadding about. After periods living in East Asia and South Africa, Stafford-Bow returned to the UK to pursue a literary career. He has written three successful novels; Corkscrew, Brut Force and Firing Blancs. He lives in London with his beer executive girlfriend, an extensive wine collection and his pet ferrets, Brett and Corky.
