‘Flamingo Land and Other Stories’ launched last week at Waterstones, Piccadilly, London. The book includes ‘The Work of Lesser-Known Artists.’ The story features hard-pressed gallery attendant Patti, struggling to make ends meet in an ever more draconian work environment supposedly dedicated to Art. It explores the issue of the commodification of people as well as the commodification of Art. For details on how to get hold of a copy, visit the Publications page.
This story was a runner-up in the London Short Story competition 2014. It’s set in a major, publicly-funded gallery, and features the hard-pressed Patti who finds that her job as a gallery attendant falls far short of what she hoped it would be. Eventually, as tensions rise, Patti finds she has to take matters into her own hands. Published by Flight Press and available from Amazon.
