“I’m so close to falling apart. Fuck it. Who isn’t?”
Thomas Moore’s latest novel Your Dreams, the follow-up to 2021’s devastating Forever, is a visceral yet contained inquiry into the endless need to be understood.
Eavesdropping on a debate about cancelled bands, listening to a close friend’s explanation of his disturbing desires, facilitating a conversation about kinks at a party until it goes wrong, Moore’s narrator is less of a character than a witness of desperate disconnection.
Your Dreams, despite its impulse to hide, faces the reader head-on in an intimate unmasking, still grasping for closeness in a world of limits. “Simple words. Deep emotions … beyond prose to another plane. Openness that pours through you.” Jack Skelley, The Los Angeles Review of Books
“Thomas Moore is one of the best writers the world has in stock.” Dennis Cooper

“It’s a wanker’s hell, a nothing, with everything wrong in it. Civvy Life is a fucking boredom cruise across the dead med. Fuck that.
Responsibility isn’t for animals on drugs and when the sharpened cone emerges, the green twisted wart, the wicked witch; then you go for it big time, open your legs, fuck them, let them fuck your face, become the god and don’t feel bad about it either.”
Put a song in your heart (and a pill your tongue) with these five stories of misery, mirth and mental mayhem from the ground zero of UK grimness. “'Amphetamine Sulphate', a chapbook press that prides itself on the cheap, brutal rush of pure literature.
Among the writers of the first collection is Sleaford Mods' Jason Williamson, who's turned his pen to a collection of five stories titled Slabs From Paradise.” Quietus
“A series of shit dominoes forever falling onto each other; the bloodline never stops creating a firm continual history of behavioural mess.”
It’s comedy night on the terminal ward. Jason Williamson returns with thirteen all-new short stories from a grim and desperate world where everything is either ‘knackered and shit or new and shit.’
Sound familiar? Here you’ll meet roaming loners, twats in fast cars, hard men telling porkies, strong women who know the score, various music maniacs and sex-addled, whizz-infested pub warts galore. But it’s not all abject fucking misery, Williamson’s characters come alive and somehow manage to conjure some happy days from the endless, panicked slog of caged poverty and bad choices.
So settle down for some porn barks, crap nature, terrible housing and dogging hotspots. Life à la fuckin sniff innit.
Jason Williamson is, of course, in the Sleaford Mods
