Join us at Hydra Books in Bristol for readings, performance and discussion from two related Influx Press projects, about the issues of housing, squatting, dissent and self-housing culture.
– George F., author of the London based squatting memoir ‘Total Shambles’
– Paul Hawkins, author of the upcoming Influx collection Place/Waste/Dissent: plotting the run-off, rackets and resistance to the proposed M11 Link Road in the 90’s; text experiment and collage; memory traces re-surface the A12; from Claremont Road to Cameron.
All followed by a discussion and Q&A with the audience, chaired by Gary Budden of Influx Press.
Praise for ‘Total Shambles’:
Dodgy on the edge, or edgy on the dodge? Either way, George F’s thunderous declamation against the enforced poverty of those who choose to exist on the other side of the lines, and possibly beyond the pale, acts as a salutary lesson in the florid hardships and plain hard work of ‘alternative lifestyles’: you can make it if you can take it – few can.
– Penny Rimbaud, Crass
