Lose her again (published )

Tony White‘s new novella, Missorts Volume II (published by Situations) is a companion piece to the author’s permanent public artwork for Bristol: “An urban soundwork delivered directly to your smartphone as a mobile app, Missorts combines ten location-triggered stories by ten writers set to a newly composed soundtrack”:

Paul is a postman working nights at Bristol Temple Meads, while Ronnie does the Missorts duty on the late shift. Oliver is a lecturer who makes an unexpected discovery about William Blake — and himself — in the archives. Jenny is a young woman seeking a kind of peace with the father who walked out on her when she was a child. These four lives barely connect, but they have all been shaped by loves lost and letters found. Now they must each find their own way to write a reply.
