We also have the concluding chapters to Johny Brown’s brutalist tale of life in the city as only its protagonists know it. Here is a snippet to whet your appetite
Things had been very good to Dave since he flew out to
Malaga for a holiday. He had merrily stumbled upon the world
of import / export whilst drinking in an ex pat bar and this
seemed like much more fun than the rag trade.
He subsequently sold off the clothes business and invested the
profit in shifting select products. Things were going well and he
liked his new life.
Today’s meeting was crucial to his latest venture and he was
making his way to Westminster slowly via various café’s
restaurants and bars. He would be taking the MP for a veritable
blow out and this was a good warm up. The sooner he was out
of this London shithole though and back in the Anglo orientated
sun of Spain the Better. The weather in this place was bad.
He had started the morning early in a freezing cold and rain
driven Borough Market feasting himself on London’s finest
venison burger followed by the truffley orgasmic delight of
Tuber Melanosporum and moving on to a delicious chocolate
spread with olive oil and twelve different drunken cheeses.
These had been garnished with the tastiest chutney’s
preserved in the nicest possible way and ooh that warm feeling
inside it gave him, it was good to treat yourself every now and
then but really he was just warming up as he lingered at the
gourmet goat stall and tried a bit of kid before repairing to the
specialists in meat and the quality fruiterers
And my his fancy was quite taken by all the flowers on display
and the scent of lilies overpowering that he almost forgot
himself a moment and felt quite someone else which only
spurred him on to sample some of the finest European wines
known to man. Money was no object and he sampled a choice
thirty-year old Cote Du Rhone.
More coming soon
