Excited to announce the second signing for Retreat West Books is FJ Morris for her flash collection, This Is (Not About) David Bowie, which will be published in November 2018.
It’s a fantastic collection of stories that is filled with dreams, hopes and ambitions, as well as a sense of needing to find your way, and yourself, in the world. When submitting it FJ Morris said that she hoped the collection reflects Bowie’s experimental nature and artistry through a diverse range of voices, styles and experiences. I can confirm that it definitely does and I’m looking forward to sharing all of these stories with you.
FJ Morris said: ‘When I began writing This is (not about) David Bowie in 2016 it snowed in April, turning the cracked roads into a blank canvas. Now, almost two years later, I signed with Retreat West Books before going out and making a snowman, which surprisingly ended up looking just like The Snowman from the animation film that Bowie starred in. It seems that when the heavens open, there comes a little magic with it too. I’m overjoyed and can’t wait to work with Retreat West who I know will bring a little magic of their own too!’
