Art Critic & Firestarter

Will Gimpertz

Will Gimpertz is alter-ego of Andy Gell, a fledgling writer from the South of the North of England. After accidentally writing a play, a slavish dedication to acronyms and the number 23 has yielded a five book trilogy.

Clambering out of a rabbit hole of his own creation, he looks towards the future while he looks towards the past. In the distance an antiquated ice cream is playing O Sole Mio.

It’s right of course.

It’s now or never.

When pressed, he will always blame The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu.
