I've just updated the https://t.co/107yGEPZNb website with @FarahAhamed's brilliant pick of twelve short stories with a theme of flowers and statues.
Neil Young - Harvest Moon. ❤️ ‘Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon When we were strangers I watched you from afar When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart...’
@beardedbadgerpc @thecommonbreath 100% agree. Both are outstanding. There must be so much quality out there that didn't get the recognition it deserved at the time. Looking forward to see what they come up with next.
@thecommonbreath @MartinGeraght1 I tip my hat to you Brian for publishing both books - a stroke of genius publishing! Brilliant my friend!😊
@MartinGeraght1 @thecommonbreath It’s a superb collection!! I loved it. I’m reading ‘Waiting For Nothing’ at the moment and I’m left astounded that I’ve never read Tom Kromer before - it’s like a blend of Steinbeck, Hamsun and Fante all rolled into one!
I love The Smiths. I sometimes forget how much I do. I remember in Atlanta, pretty new in town, still feeling completely overwhelmed but in the company of new friends; I went to a bar and it turned out to be a Smiths tribute band playing. I belted out every word of every song.
ugh so appalled by the amount of folk who have voted Tory. So you’ve basically ticked a box saying you don’t give a flying fuck about the rest of society. Don’t give a flying fuck about poverty, the rise of the use of food banks, cuts to every bloody service, unemployment. WTF?
Finished the second in @thecommonbreath re-publiction of outstanding neglected work. One of best short story collections I've read and one I will always return to. Too many highlights to mention as it is consistently brilliant.
@thecommonbreath @PublishScotland @scottishbooks @scottishbktrust @scotlit @han_sc98 @ScotBooksInt @ScottishLit @StrathclydeCW @ScotsWhayHae Looking forward to receiving my copy. Love Tom Leonard. What a wonderful legacy he has left – what a fantastic influence on Scottish literature.
Hartlepool has never voted for a Tory MP before. England has decided to go in a different direction and won’t be stopped by anyone. Scotland must be able to do the same.
👏 @NicolaSturgeon: "The far-right thug who lead the confrontation got 46 votes - and I'm proud that once again, Glasgow Southside has shown the racists and fascists that they're not welcome in Glasgow, or anywhere in Scotland. Let that be the note of unity." #FascistsOut
