Craner tell us about your twenties. Were you really young once?
What did you do while/after drinking the wine bottles, without streaming services and gigabytes of free pornography??No, in my twenties I was trying extremely hard to be an adult. I talked about it on here once. I tried to acquire all the outward signifiers. Every day at 11am I would be reading a copy of the International Herald Tribune while sipping organic coffee in the Foyles cafe. Then, after work, I would go back to the chaos and squalor and mild poverty of my digs on Roman Road and face the reality of two £5 bottles of “wine” for the night. It was a decade of tragicomedy and, predictably, it ended quite badly.
Well that sounds just swell and romantic enough. What did you smoke? What did you write on? This is when you wrote Citta Violenta? Is going from Wales to London back to Wales in older age a bit like moving to New York from the provinces n back?Wrote, talked, smoked, watched films.
