Story of the Week- this week! Reposted because… Find it here and take like a biscuit on the side.
Nuisance Value is a story that you may think is my own swan song. Or more likely a self-description. It has, rather wonderfully, been selected as a finalist for Magazine’s Spring Story Competition. It is my rather tongue-in-cheek exposure of the heartlessness of petty local government when it has an agenda for which rather poor people are simply in the way, but in this case they win, though rather poignantly.
It dogs the heels of its companion ‘Blerrie Fockin Beautiful which TODAY has been selected as on of the five top stories of the year (2013-2014) and will be published by Narrative as an audio (read by yours truly with full-throated tobacco effects hopefully edited out!) Watch this space for links in due course.
Just a small celebration.
