Ten stories set in Hackney. Ten intertwined lives. A dole officer learns how to poach rabbits. A banker’s devotion to his allotment threatens his day job. An advice worker wrestles with parasites. A jilted lover speculates on the nature of torture. A teacher meets a mysterious stranger. A group of climate activists fail to organise a piss up in the brewery of (very) late capitalism. How we live now.
In the words of Muriel Spark, for those of you who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you will like.
