Description

Literary Fiction as an art and a narrative is central to our culture. Elegant and layered. Serious. Form flowing. Stylistically influenced by tectonic social shifts inspired by embodying aspects of counterculture, opposition to economic marginalization, sexual repression, drugs and a hostility to bureaucracy or mediocrity. In this we will always find the author at the heart of the chaos. Experience, emotion and imagination in a relentless pursuit of literary recognition through adversity. Writing from the frayed edge of society.God is a Pig defines itself by being an indefinable collaboration between the street and the reader, our shared intimacy and longing, the exhausting struggle to be human in inhuman circles. Our unique way of experiencing the city where we are the city. A collection of powerful and provocative pieces God is a Pig celebrates 20 years of the author's poetry from his first to the most recent. Exploring poverty, prostitution, addiction, insanity, murder and love, with unflinching honesty. Poetry that rises excitedly from the flat page with the sweat and energy of a live reading. A revival of erotic prose in tribute to the heavyweights of Literary Fiction who have been forgotten under piles of mass-produced pseudo erotic pulp offering cheap thrills. Literature is the motivation for this work. All those who suffered for daring to write. Words slashed across paper in an aggressively meaningless intellectual existence in an existentially despairing universe where there is no escape from the hungry, howling streets and our own deteriorating mental state. "When everything had finally been removed from my life through addiction, mental illness and poverty I was left with a liberating animism to survive. I became an Id. A man lost to the world, fighting back with a Quixotic pen. Desperate for recognition for the writing that got me there. Some meaning to this doomed journey into the heart of the concrete jungle that had marooned me from social norms forever. In rooms where floors are stained with memories and I am eager to forget some men are starving, some men have guns and everything is about blood or money. Here, we're all eager to forget that God is a pig." - Adam Murray.
