Smiling in Slow Motion is Derek Jarman's last journal, stretching from May 1991 until a fortnight before his death in February 1994.
In non-linear snippets and including photographs of Jarman's artwork, he describes his sexual awakening in post-war England, his early struggles to create and find recognition for his art, and vivid accounts of his friends, lovers, and inspirations.
Conceived of as a 'pharmacopoeia' - an ever-evolving circle of stones, plants and flotsam sculptures all built and grown in spite of the bracing winds and arid shingle - it remains today a site of fascination and wonder.

Derek Jarman's garden is in the flat expanse of shingle that faces the nuclear power station in Dungeness, Kent. He mixed the flint, shells and driftwood of Dungeness with indigenous and introduced plants. This book is his own record of how this garden evolved, from its beginnings in 1985.
