20 years in the counterculture working at Rough Trade Record Shop, now working in freedom of expression NGO world. I hope my books are more than just the sum of the above. I used to be a playwright, but then started writing more for dancers and physical theatre performers. I like a challenge and I like to move out of my comfort zone. Now

I'm quite a political author, I've written about people who seek to change the world and they do not pursue their aims with a pen believe you me! Writers hold no power other than the ability to transport a reader through their imagination. Now if a writer were able to do that to millions simultaneously, then you might have a force for change. Or you might have "50 Shades Of Grey" which had millions of women all imagining the same sexual fantasies as written by the author. I found that a bit disturbing but there you go. Good luck to the author!(less)

However I believe authors who write in a genre have a real passion for it, which I would assume makes writing in that genre for them easier than writing in a less familiar one. (less)

Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh

Those perfect, neat colonials I’d passed earlier that evening on my way through X-ville are the death masks of normal people. Nobody is really so orderly, so perfect. To have a house like that says more about what’s wrong with you than any decrepit dump. Those people with perfect houses are simply obsessed with death. A house that is so well maintained, furnished with good-looking furniture of high quality, decorated tastefully, everything in its place, becomes a living tomb. People truly engaged in life have messy houses.
