The day the Berlin Wall came down, Jennifer returned to England, leaving her week-old daughter, Szandi, to grow up on a Hungarian vineyard with 300 years of history. Now 18, Szandi is part of... More > Budapest’s cosmopolitan art scene, sharing a flat and a bohemian lifestyle with her lover and fellow sculptress, Yang. She has finally found her place in the world. Then a letter arrives that threatens everything, and forces her to choose once and for all: between the past and the present; between East and West; between her family and her lover. Quirky, contemporary, and ultra-cool; sensuous, seductive, and heartbreaking: Songs from the Other Side of the Wall is a coming of age story that inhabits anti-capitalist chatrooms and ancient wine cellars, seedy bars and dreaming spires; and takes us on a remarkable journey across Europe and cyberspace in the company of rock stars and dropouts, diaries that appear from nowhere, a telepathic fashion mogul, and the talking statue of a bull.< Less

Dan Holloway is a winner of Literary Death Match, a multiple slam-winning poet, curator of eight cuts gallery, and host of the acclaimed spoken word show The New Libertines.

More > associations we make are hard-wired into us, and the lengths to which we are pushed if we want to free ourselves of these associations. It puts the question whether we can tunnel so deep inside the constructs that constitute our world, surround ourselves and familiarise ourselves with them so much that they become first banal, then meaningless, then empty, and finally receptacles for our own making of the world anew. That is to say, it puts the question of the possibility of hope. Contains adult language.< Less

NOTHING TO SAY By Dan Holloway

These pieces, which represent a moment in cultural time, have been chosen because they tackle head-on the glorious complexity of life. No piece is aridly intellectual, no piece one-dimensionally... More > humorous or political or even beautiful. Each work addresses with one strand the myriad issues facing life in the 21st Century and with another a history of thought and culture stretching back into classical times. So from P A Levy’s experimental visual poetry and Andy Harrod’s multimedia and typographical experimentation through Errol McGlashan’s London Lonely, which has been received to rapturous receptions at poetry slams across the UK and Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s deliciously askance retellings of classical myths, each layer of NOTHING TO SAY contributes, like the planes of a cubist masterpiece, not only its own fully-realised presence but a new element of a whole that seeks to release everyone who reads it so they can experience their own lives in their own wonderful voices.< Less
