“I have unlimited vices—laziness, wastefulness, being too emotional. I mean to fix these things, but I have a feeling that my novels would then die, so I leave them be.” So says Natsuo Kirino (Out, and other stuff where people seem to get chopped up a lot).
Popped up at another pop-up gallery on the weekend of February 13-14. Art on walls, readings, performances, live music, a bar, curious cocktails. Here’s some pictures by Jerome Whittingham from the laid back Sunday afternoon. If you came along, thanks. If you’d like to get involved in future happenings, drop us a line.

“You get these writers who say: ‘I go to my office at nine and I write from nine till 12 and then I revise from two till four and that’s my day, and I do 2,000 words a day and when I’ve done my 2,000 words a day that’s me,’ and you go: ‘What?’ I have days when I do fuck all. I sit down at a computer, nothing’s coming, I’m having to tear each word out, it’s like digging for coal, and I’ll go: ‘No, this isn’t working,’ and I’ll just walk away.”
Got some stuff on as part of this. You might want to come and have a look?
