NEWS AND PRESS RELEASES – LUBIN TALES BY GERRY KING
Welcome to a world of small town debauchery and intercontinental dubious intent . . .
Lubin Tales is a 64-page hardback, pocket-sized collection of beautifully illustrated ‘micro-fictions’ – a debut collection of short stories and musings by artist and performer Gerry King.
Surreal, playful and romantic, the stories are woven together from various locations and time frames; an abandoned 1947 V-12 Lincoln automobile waits for a history in a French wood, British seaside resorts are portrayed with renewed love and nostalgia. A host of characters tease and entertain: the fabulous Pauls, one a continental hairdresser, the other a 1950s welterweight boxer, the promenade-prancing Poodle Faker and the deliciously deviant Stealerant.
Each page is a visual delight, colour throughout with graphic illustration and photography.
Let me Save You From Yourself
She was svelte, sexy, sensation-seeking and Scorpio – worked as a nurse and liked to get her fingers into the ward trolley for the dolly mixtures. He was a borderline-functioning chemically dependent criminal creative with interests in Brixton and Totnes. In ecstasy ‘loved-up mode’ they would swan about Brighton and Hove in a midnight-blue Sunbeam Rapier playing Barry White on the eight track.
Envy is a strong word – let me now save you from yourself.
