An unreliable narrator, exiled on the coast, looks back on a book he may never have written. On a walk down the A13 from Aldgate Pump to Southend he acquires a package left by a missing woman - a package of stories that anticipate his quest.
A tale of doubles and doppelgangers, of Hastings, of Essex and the A13.
An unreliable narrator, exiled on the coast, looks back on a book he may never have written. On a walk down the A13 from Aldgate Pump to Southend he acquires a package left by a missing woman -- a package of stories that anticipate his quest. Were these in fact written by the woman, or abandoned at an earlier and forgotten period by the writer himself?
It's a journey interrupted by various meditations, mini-essays, interrogations: on photography, on parallel investigations, on films left in cameras but never processed . . .
