I'm delighted to have my first novel available once again! The Readymades will be available from September 1. The first edition sold out sometime in 2013 I believe so it's nice that there'll be copies once more to pass around. It's certainly a curious debut novel and I'm still immensely proud of it.Darko Dragičević and I go a way to creating an entire missing art movement and indeed back in 2011 we took the show on the road and exhibited the (fictional) art group's work in many real life locations, Darko creating some wonderful artworks, installations and performances. Indeed at times we confused ourselves with where the fiction ended and the real began, and vice versa, and the mystery, such as there is one, can be found somewhere between the covers of the book...
I'm also hoping to get copies into the hands of reviewers, so do please reach out if you or someone you know would be interested in writing about the project.
Deep thanks to Darko. For everything. And to Form und Konzept Grafikdesign Studio for graphic design and typesetting and all the others who have helped bring this odd roman trouvé into existence from 2011 to 2019.
