Café Street RELEASED Christmas 2020
Café Street & Other Stories. An unimportant man chats to his television. The best laid plans for a green and vegan world go wrong. A man wakes up as a woman, or so he thinks. A busy street becomes an eerie café. A plague party with the neighbours. A bad-news addict, a doomscroller, gets his comeuppance. And a grandfather writes a book in code. But who's it really for? Sit in Café Street and sip the heady brew. But hurry up. You don't have long.
