Sample text

Maybe you’re thinking that, despite my best efforts, I’ve come off as a whiny prick. If so, I wouldn’t worry about it. The only thing you need to worry about now is that you’ve made a minor commitment to reading a book about someone who started out as a whiny prick. I feel your pain. Could be that it seems like this is going to be a long read, and for all you know the twist at the end is that I don’t have a character arc. I’ll do my best to mitigate that. Let’s not forget that you’ve seen my friends at their worst by now, as well.

Thank God for that moment. An hour later, that was how things were, they’d always been that way, how could anyone not understand that? But it was six in the morning before the right comeback fell into place. I was wearing my dressing gown when I banged on Frank’s door. Took him a while to open it. ‘Fucking hell Quinn,’ he said. ‘I’m sorry,’ I said. ‘I’m sorry. Can I come in? ’ Frank waved me in, and I sat on a pile of shirts in his chair. But all I said was ‘I’m sorry,’ again. ‘It’s fucking 6am,’ he said, getting back into bed.

It will be a mess of memories, as best they are remembered. It will be a scattershot of histories, because I do not know what parts I can afford to leave out. There are mistakes and faux pas, damages and destruction, passions and revelations, longing and belonging, love, mystery, tragedy, respect, and just a tiny little bit of sex which has been romanticised and overstated to the point of hyperbole, and in any case was had by other people. It can start like this: I spent a year in Fife Park. Nothing at all happened, and nothing ever changed me more.
