Total Shambles by George F

After slipping through the cracks of modern life and into the amoral underground beyond work-a-day society, George F finds himself at the heart of London’s political frontline, where anarchy, alcohol and addiction stalk the streets of a different city to the one you know.

From life on the street to behind the barricades, from the occupation of derelict buildings to inevitable evictions and confrontation with law and order, from euphoria to despair, Total Shambles follows the journey of an idealistic writer as he tries to thrive and survive in the contentious world of squatting in London.

Total Shambles is proof, if any more were needed, of the necessity of disobedience. It also contains the best description of a ketamine hit I’ve ever read.

LuxDis

By Dan Duggan

Luxury of the Dispossessed, the debut collection from poet and artist Dan Duggan, is a book of derelicts, poems from purgatory, stories of incarceration on psychiatric wards under the provisions of The Mental Health act.

‘These are raw and true poems full of bare feeling and sorrow, offering us a startling glimpse into the world of psychiatric care. Dan Duggan’s magic is his heartbreaking honesty and his ability to find tenderness and beauty within the darkest times.’
- Liz Berry (Felix Dennis Prize winner 2014)

Life in Transit

‘…looking at Sam Berkson’s book, I am reminded of some possible precursors of the fast-talking mode of the new generation: Ferlinghetti for instance, or Jacques Prévert or even the Chilean anti-poet Nicanor Parra.’ – Ambit
