Just published!!

'through and through' by Hayley and Sue Tompkins
is a book which realises a work first written and performed in 1998 in Glasgow. It is an alphabet full of remote possibilities and ideas from that time, made collaboratively, almost performatively.

Lemonade
David Berridge

Stein had oranges, Ponge blackberries, Lawrence sorb-apples and pomegranates, and Lorca a Garden of the Lunar Grapefruits. But where is the lemon in all this, either as fruit, a way of understanding writing, or as lemonade ‘cloud & clear & fizzy / limonade ramune nimbu paani schweppes.’ This publication seeks answers. Or, as Kafka put it, ‘a man cannot die and drink.’

Julia Calver

At the heart of Kafka's small, syntactically ambiguous space is an object called out –
With resounding retroactive force his pause brings the object to speech.
Here is writing invested in this moment.
