At first looked as though a crow was pecking at the bark, but on closer inspection he noticed tiny white feathers being spat out from its beak with each bite. Keats roared and the crow flew away. Crawling along the second bough he lifted the creature from the twigs and dropped it into his pink dotted handkerchief. Normally, Keats would be lucky to find a couple of pigeon eggs in the oak at the south side of the common. So coming across an angel trapped in its lower branches was something of a discovery.
Shakespeare has a writing block and Medusa just doesn’t like her hairstyle – of course! BAFTA award – winning filmmaker Asitha Ameresekere brings his extraordinary talents to the page with his startling, thought provoking and tender offering of stories. Incredibly charming and beautifully written with a balance of pathos and humor, Amaresekere shows us that a chance encounter, a hidden revelation, or even an angel could reconfigure the world. Ameresekere reveals the idiosyncrasies and odd logic that rule our lives, making this stunning debut the work of a writer with a spectacularly original and compelling voice.
