41 | Kit De Waal & Dean O'Loughlin


Author Kit De Waal and little brother Dean O'Loughlin are 2 of 5 siblings, who grew up in Birmingham in the 60s and 70s. Their Irish mother and Kittitian father were ill-equipped to provide the care their charismatic and clever children needed, and life was 'predictably unpredictable'. Despite the hunger and the cold which characterised their childhood, the siblings nevertheless have happy memories too, and banded together like 'Vietnam vets', bonded by the unique experiences they shared. Now Kit and Dean work as screenwriters together, drawing on their incredible knowledge of classic film, inherited from their father, whose love of cinema was an escape from tougher realities. Kit's memoir 'Without Warning and Only Sometimes' is published this summer.
