THE EYE OF THE HARE
Price - £9.99

As a filmmaker and editor, I’ve been telling other people’s stories for decades. Now I’ve written my own. “THE EYE OF THE HARE” is about family continuity, storytelling, and dexterity.  As a two year old, I suffered severe burns to my hands. They ensure that I do things carefully. For me, meaning in life is best found through a slow attention to things. I find real significance in the woods and valleys near home, and the keen stare of a fox or a hare. My father, Oliver Heywood, was a landscape painter, and my love of nature comes from him. 

"There is so much that is absolutely beautiful, moving and informative - and poetic."

Some of Oliver’s paintings appear in the book, here reproduced in colour.


I have also adapted the book into a one-man play - produced by my daughter and son, Lucy and Barney, of Stand + Stare – with performances at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol, the Bristol Old Vic, the Gloucester Strike a Light Festival and in Stroud.

“Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly how you tell a story. Could listen to Pip Heywood for hours.”
