Barry Graham the Scrivener


(from Scumbo: Tales of Love, Sex and Death)

She’d been working there for about three weeks before my visit. I didn’t want to go there. I wanted to meet her in a cafe, but she’d lost her driver’s licence, and the bus took too long to get to the centre of town. She’d have had barely any time to eat and talk with me before she had to head back there.

How it’s going to end

But I hope that we

Can meet again”

I waited outside the theatre, but they didn’t show up. I was a few minutes late, but I’d have expected Andy to wait for me. It would be at least another thirty minutes before the movie started. Maybe Leanne had gotten impatient and dragged him inside.


Larry Fondation and I have been inseparable friends for about 25 years now. And, even though he's in Los Angeles, USA, and I'm in Glasgow, Scotland, we were recently spotted together in Paris, France, in L'Ecume des pages bookshop. Fitting, as we met in a bookshop.
