BabyBarista and the Art of War
If you are looking for a light hearted entertaining holiday read, then you may wish to purchase a copy of Tim Kevan's book BabyBarista and the Art of War. Already widely known as a blog on The Times’ website, the book is being published by Bloomsbury in August of this year.
BabyBarista and the Art of War is Tim Kevan's first novel, and was described by broadcaster Jeremy Vine as "a wonderful, racing read - well-drawn, smartly plotted and laugh out loud" and by author Boris Starling as "sharp, acerbic, and almost illegally funny".
Tim Kevan practised as a barrister for over ten years at 1 Temple Gardens in London. He specialised in particular in sports law, personal injury, civil fraud and credit hire and wrote or co-wrote ten law books. He was also a member of the Bar Council’s Public Affairs Committee.
Tim told the Bar Council: “Having so far had ten very happy years practising at the Bar, it has been a wonderful opportunity in the last couple of years to do something a bit different and to create a book which will hopefully make people smile.”
Tim follows in a tradition of barristers writing legal comedy including Henry Cecil, Clive Coleman and the great John Mortimer and his famous Rumpole of the Bailey series. He is also the co-author (with Dr Michelle Tempest) of Why Lawyers Should Surf’ (xpl Publishing, 2007). For more information visit Tim’s website.
