Smiling in Slow Motion

Author(s): Derek Jarman

Literary biography

This autobiography, taken from his diaries of 1991-94, interweaves Jarman's harrowing account of physical decline and failing eyesight with wonderfully poetic and detailed descriptions of the changing seasons of Dungeness, his meetings with Tennant, Freud and others, his thoughts on his sex life and his love for his boyfriend.
