Now the rivers no longer meet the seas

I’ll be reading an extract from my essay Now The Rivers No Longer Meet The Seas on Monday 21 October. It’s included in the new Mechanics’ Institute Review anthology, which for the first time includes non-fiction and poetry and has a theme. That theme is climate which was really relevant when the call for submissions when out and seems even more vital now.

I was in Tunisia over Christmas and New Year 2010/2011 which was the short period between Mohammed Bouazizi setting himself on fire and the fall of Ben Ali’s Tunisian government. Events which started the Arab Spring. There's also a kitten.
