Videos from the launch for our second book

Last Thursday we hosted a launch event for our second collection of short stories (you can read more about our book here) upstairs at the Betsey Trotwood in Clerkenwell. We got a good turnout, and four of us read stories or extracts from stories that appear in the book. I think it’s fair to say that we were all pleased with how it went, especially those of us who battled to overcome our nerves to read.

But don’t just take our word for it – because like last year we recorded it, so if you weren’t able to come along you can watch videos from the evening. The performances you can find on-line are:

Jinaka Ugochukwu Old Friends and 1981

Rob Mukherjee – Left Foot, Right Foot, Repeat

Simon Jones – extract from Stupid Bloody Tuesday

James Holden – extract from The Castle

(One member of the group described the curtains in the background as being “a bit Twin Peak”. We can assure you no backwards-speaking dwarfs were harmed in the making on these videos)


About James Holden

Brought up in Yorkshire, James has washed up on the shores of London. He spends his days working as a political geek. His short stories have previously been read by the Liars League.
