A corridor runs down the middle of the building, with a smaller corridor leading off to a lift shaft just over halfway down. There are six little rooms along the main corridor, three on either side. They’re all the same size, three metres by five, and each one is furnished with an iron-framed bed, a hard-backed chair, and a bedside cabinet.” Linus wakes on a wheelchair, in a lift shaft, looking out into a white corridor.

    Naked – Kevin Brooks

    “My heart was born in the long hot summer of 1976; my life was made, my love was sealed, my soul was lost and broken. It was the summer of so many things – heat and violence, love and hate, dreams and nightmares, heaven and hell – and when I look back on it now, it’s hard to tell the good from the bad.” In the year of 1976 Lili Garcia met William Bonney – the Irish gent who she knew was special from the minute she saw.
