Up On The Roof. A READING FROM FUTURES. With John Barker and music/sounds courtesy of Wealth of Negations and friends.
It’s Friday, 6pm and as the City of London’s financial district clears out for the weekend, MayDay Rooms invites you to join John Barker on the roof of 88 Fleet Street for a reading from his recently published novel, Futures (PM Press, May 2014). Roll back for a moment to Thatcher’s Britain of 1987 and follow Jack and Phil, a pair of coke-fuelled city analysts facing an unregulated dive of their own stock post-Big Bang, as they embark on a new speculative venture with their supplier Carol – a cocaine futures market. As yet another market crash looms on the horizon, join Carol, Jack, Phil, John, Wealth of Negations and friends for an evening of words, music, drinking and dancing – weather/London hurricane permitting.
