Philip Ridley’s collection of short stories (Flamingoes in Orbit) – like his two adult novels, Crocodilia and In the Eyes of Mr Fury – became an instant cult classic when first published in 1990.
Flamingoes in Orbit Audiobook Recording
‘Flamingoes in Orbit’ was updated and re-released in 2019. I auditioned to be the audiobook narrator and I’m very proud to say that I got the part.
These stories were a pleasure to bring to life: A multitude of interesting and believable characters jumped out at me from the page and lent themselves to a range of British accents.
I recorded my performance of the novel in October and November 2018 and Ridley’s accurate, engaging and sometimes controversial storytelling literally made me laugh and cry.

This great book is about coming of age, family dynamics and being gay in 80’s England, “in a world still bristling with prejudice, and (it) sings and howls with the need for equality and freedom.”
“Menace lurks in the shady corners of family life…. Chilling.” (Time Out)
“Ridley is a visionary.” (Rolling Stone)
