His latest work, Olympic Opinion focuses on the divide between the people of London created by the impending Summer sporting events. "There appears to be," he says "a split among those who live in the city, with one side celebrating a grandoise event that will, they believe, reinvigorate British sports, and at the same time do wonders for the British economy and British culture; and the other camp, who believe that the Games are an annoyance to those who live their everyday lives in the city, and a drain on public finances.' (Oleg Tolstoy, 2012).
Olympic Opinion is currently being made into an ibook by Elizabeth Beecher Publishing.
