Travis Elborough has been a freelance writer, author and cultural commentator for more than a decade now. His books include The Bus We Loved, a history of the Routemaster bus; The Long Player Goodbye, a hymn to vinyl records; and Wish You Were Here, a survey of the British beside the seaside. The most recent, A Walk in the Park: The Life and Times of A People's Institution, was published by Jonathan Cape this June. Elborough is a regular contributor to the Observer and the Guardian but has written for the Times, Sunday Times, New Statesman, the Oldie, TATE etc., BBC History magazine and Kinfolk among others and frequently appears on BBC Radio 4 and Five Live. He has survived interviewing the former (and notoriously bibulous) Dr Who Tom Baker in a pub, lectured on 'retro' culture and appeared at various literary and music festivals, including Latitude and Green Man, and on a panel discussing Hedonism at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London with a burlesque dancer and the late artist dandy Sebastian Horsley.
