Giles and Jim met up with Louis down at Nordic Bar just after Christmas while Louis was taking a break from writing his new autobiography. We discussed many aspects of Louis' early career and how a mundane job in a glass blowing workshop led to him focussing his attention to other creative endeavours. Jim tells Louis about the time he nearly got sued for libel and we find out why Blankness is ever-present in Louis' life.
