Corona-Nation Street


Way back in the distant mists of February 2020, we began to hear reports of a deadly virus that originated in China. But this new virus soon ripped its path through the world, like an invading horde, killing without prejudice until it finally found its way to our door. This book is inspired by our experiences of the UK lockdown, and how we might navigate the new, post-covid world. Is this the beginning of the end, or just the end of the beginning? Join us for a trip down Corona-Nation Street, with stories and poetry that are horrifying, haunting, hilarious, horny, heartfelt and hopeful. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the NHS.
