Hello. I’m Lev Parikian. Welcome! This site is the base for all information about my writing activities. You might be interested in my work as a conductor, for which you should head over here. And do sign up to my Monthly Stuff email – you’ll get a free ebook and a monthly email with a variety of interesting and varied things to offer you a bolthole from the rigours of modern life.

My second book, Why Do Birds Suddenly Disappear?, will be published by Unbound on May 17th 2018. Early reviews have included the words ‘loveliest’, ‘hilariously honest’, ‘beautifully written’ and ‘approachable’. So that’s nice. You can pre-order it on Amazon, or, if you prefer, on Hive. Or call your local bookshop. That would be good. My first book, Waving, Not Drowning, remains available on Amazon. More about both of them on the Books page. And finally, my blog is here – I update it regularly and will always reply to comments. Do say hello, either there or through the contact page.
