About the Author

Mark Evans has written really quite often for television and radio, including five series of Radio 4's Bleak Expectations, BBC2's The Bleak Old Shop Of Stuff and That Mitchell and Webb Look. He is also the author of this book, the one you're holding or looking at now. He lives in North London with one wife, no dog and enough children, thank you, and can be bribed quite easily to do most things involving words.

Bleak Expectations

Bleak Expectations

Author: Mark Evans Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/05/2014

Based on the beloved Radio 4 series, Bleak Expectations recounts the remarkable adventures of young Pip Bin as he tries to make his way in a world made all horrible by the machinations of his cruel guardian, Mr Gently Benevolent. Grim circumstances, mistaken identities, nightmarish court-cases, ridiculous names, convenient coincidences to resolve plot problems, over-sentimental death scenes and lots and lots of adjectives: Bleak Expectations is a novel like Charles Dickens might have written after far too much gin.

Author: Mark Evans, Elania Pieragostini Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/07/2020

Many of the most beautiful Renaissance portraits, botanical illustrations and landscape paintings are watercolours. Spanning the period 1450-1640, this book considers these diverse artworks together for the first time, it brings together 150 paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Durer, Hans Holbein, Nicholas Hilliard and Anthony Van Dyck, as well as exquisite works by less well-known figures such as Giulio Clovio, Joris Hoefnagel, Jacopo Ligozzi and Jacques le Moyne. It highlights the intellectual breadth and artistic quality of the Renaissance watercolour, a major art form which reached as far afield as the New World and the court of the Mughal emperor.

From Turnbull to Morrison

From Turnbull to Morrison

Author: Mark Evans, Michelle Grattan, Brendan McCaffrie Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/08/2019

Is trust between the government and Australians broken? The country's leading institutions have been ranked among the least trusted in the world at a time when the economy has experienced twenty-seven years of economic growth. This has all happened since the 2016 federal election under the revolving prime ministerships of Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison's first term. Turnbull was the fourth sitting prime minister in a decade to be removed by his own party. What role do these politically turbulent times play in this trust deficit? Scott Morrison has now been elected by the people. What does he and future prime ministers need to do to reboot civic belief in politics? How will history judge the contribution of the Turnbull and Morrison administrations? In From Turnbull to Morrison well-known political journalists including Michelle Grattan, George Megalogenis, Megan Davis, Virginia Haussegger, Mark Kenny and Katharine Murphy and leading academics such as Frank Bongiorno, Mark Evans, Susan Harris-Rimmer, Anne Tiernan, John Warhurst and George Williams examine the institutions, the issues and the leaders at the heart of this crisis. It is crucial reading for champions of liberal democracy. From Turnbull to Morrison: The Trust Divide is the thirteenth volume of Australia's longest running study of Australian Commonwealth Government, started in 1983.

Through focusing on time and the temporal in performer training, this book offers innovative ways of integrating research into studio practices.
