As part of our forthcoming Surveillance anthology, If Africans Kicked Things Every Time They Got Frustrated is Jennifer’s latest short story. Working with the familiar background of displacement the story takes as its interest the community’s habit of watching and regulating itself, viewed through the eyes of a thirteen year old boy.

Moss Side Stories
The past doesn’t become history until it’s remembered.
The Moss Side and Hulme areas of Manchester were for a time not only the musical heartbeat of a city but of a new idea of the nation.
In this brilliant collection, featuring short stories, a play and interviews with DJs and club goers, the past becomes history. The music, the people and the community are remembered.
Due out in October, PDF featuring 3 of the stories, the first act of the play and 2 of the interviews free to download now. Simply click on the image below.
