This is a promotional video made by Unbound for the above. Thanks to Unbound for permission to use this. If any publishers like the idea of this collection, please get in touch! As you know I am now looking for another publisher as this project did not work with the excellent Unbound (see previous posts). The image here is of Alan Ross (on the left) and Ian Fleming at Fleming\’s home in Jamaica in the early 1960s.
Morning Lane is falling down and its dereliction is like the end of time.
at 3am in the eternal night of here, I stopped in this road of compressed grief beneath the sign ‘Morning Lane’
my lips mumbled ‘Morning Lane’ ‘Morning Lane’ and I touched the icon of its former self the beginnings of its name when milkmen’s carts clopped over cobbles and vegetables fruit and meat were swept in at dawn to load the great city for its day.
It soon became clear that crowdfunding with the excellent unbound was not the right path for this project. I am now exploring other ways to publish this fantastic collection of London Magazine stories.’
You can still watch the video that we made about the project, here.
