A Literary Hairdresser's: Nic Ladha, Chiswick

Diane Chandler brought Brie, wine and storytelling to Nic Ladha's salon on a warm summer's evening in Chiswick last Thursday. Whilst Stephanie Zia of Blackbird introduced Diane and the extracts from her novel The Road To Donetsk, Diane's daughter was in charge of book sales and guest Ewen Cameron kindly took over Stephanie's camera to take some shots of the reading.

The enlightened Nic Ladha salon is at 3 Bedford Corner, Chiswick, London W4 1LS. Tel 020 8994 8008.
