Just to inform you of the forthcoming anthology that includes a previously unpublished fragmented sory of mine called 'Music To Feed the Pigeons To.' I've seen the proofs of this book and there are some incredible writers and stories included inside. It's out on Social Disease imminently.
“A new, non-corporate internationalism is emerging in literature, an independent web of associations and alliances at whose centre, like a brooding spider, lurks 3:AM. This collection is essential reading.” - Tom McCarthy, author of Remainder, Men in Space, and Tintin and the Secret of Literature.
Published by the inimitable Social Disease, 3:AM London, Paris, New York is 30 short stories from beyond the city guides, including Chris Cleave, Matthew De Abaitua, Niven Govinden, Laura Hird, Toby Litt, Nicholas Royle and Matt Thorne. A taster:
A pseudo-religious epiphany in South London. Men are stabbed on the Boulevard de Sébastopol. A transmogrification in Hackney. William cruises around the East Village in a 1972 Mercedes 220. Voluptuous neo-Post Structuralists decipher the works of Beigbédér. Wasted sons of politicians and minor royalty agonise over Ibiza while in South Kensington. Infidelity and invitations to Le Carré adaptations on Tottenham Court Road. Buying ketamin from Colombians in Vauxhall at 4am. Un soir, un train on the Central Line. Men’s magazines and those transvestite nightclub leaflets in Harlem. A callow youth is ignored by an Indian girl for his lack of knowledge of Dave Eggers. Small talk in bikinis on Paris plage. The literary establishment of New York is brought to its knees. A film club in Islington leads to death.
