Reviewed by Imogen

‘After her performance at the Royal Festival Hall in 1999, in a mad moment of fanaticism Warren Ellis unsticks Nina Simone’s used chewing gum from her piano. He keeps this odd relic hidden away for 20 years, before unveiling it for a special exhibition.  An unusual memoir, and a wonderful meditation on the meanings we attach to objects, and what it means to be a fan and a creator.’
