“A home town geography of work and class. The shift of Monday morning hangover from coal face and winding gear, to data entry and keyboard, from belligerent father (and his father before him) to son. The coat-flapping downhill slalom of a mobility scooter.
“In this powerful and moving collection, Neil Fulwood scorns the melancholic flimsiness of office cubicle walls: laments the loss of spirit and dignity that came from having dirty hands at the end of a working day – the earned pint.” – Martin Figura
Neil Fulwood is the author of The Films of Sam Peckinpah and co-editor, with David Sillitoe, of the anthology More Raw Material: work inspired by Alan Sillitoe. He lives, works and subsidizes pubs in Nottingham. No Avoiding It is his first full collection.
