Sebastian on the joys of staying in

  • About the author EB

Sebastian Horsley, author of Dandy in the Underworld, on what home means to him in the London Times:

Sebastian Horsley, author and dandy: “My bank called to tell me my flat is in negative equity, like my life. I’ve got the opposite of the Midas touch. I can turn gold to coal and glitter to litter faster than the speed of a bullet. Staying where you are, of course, saves money. I live alone with my gas fire, by choice. Neither of us goes out unattended. And I don’t believe in travel — I prefer to lie on a divan in my parlour and let the world come to me. I write and paint to fill the hours.”
