About the speaker  |  John Tarrow

John Tarrow is an English novelist, poet, storyteller and creator of “Britain’s Most Extraordinary Home” [The Times], Talliston House & Gardens. Born in London’s East End, he spent his childhood with a Smith-Corona Calypso typewriter and a wild imagination, both of which he still owns.

 

As creative director at Talliston, John's transformation of the house and gardens showcases his ability to design extraordinary locations in the most ordinary of places. His novel The Stranger's Guide to Talliston weaves together the 13 rooms of the house and gardens into a rich narrative and introduces us to an ordinary boy who discovers the secret to achieving the extraordinary.
