New novella: coming March 30th 2023

Generation X Point Zero – Quit your Job – Tune out the Entire Human Race…

Trapped inside a culture of booze, drugs and cracked aspirations, the narrator’s attempt for anonymity amidst the chaos of society begins to collapse. Scarred by the September 11th attacks, the subsequent War on Terror and fall out of austerity, a stuttering journey towards disappearance is laden with insomnia, rootlessness and bereavement. A melancholy poetic spanning a fifteen year period reveals the deadening walls of a South-East London estate, the stifling geography of the Lake District and Brighton’s labyrinthine edginess. Each encounter – a bar, corner shop, gallery, library or hospital ward is increasingly filled with surreal menace. Ultimately, the threat is real, in a world populated with unease, confusion and sadness.

Falling Away is an achingly personal and deeply political work that speaks to the haunting present and our desperate need for hope…
