The Great Recession

I’m going to be posting extracts from my forthcoming book: The Great Recession.

It’s a loose collection of writing spanning ten years and a couple of months (2003 to 2014). Fiction, poetry, photographs and some autobiography. Its out on Kindle in the Spring.

I can hear it coming.                  January 2014

At night, as I lie awake in bed, I listen to the sound of the railway.
Rolling thunder and screeching metal wheels.
It reminds me of a time before the Great Recession;
When I had to imagine how poverty and pain felt.
