Perverted by Language: Fiction Inspired by the Fall
Serpent's Tail, 2007 - Fiction - 277 pages
Mechanical ducks, shark women that taste of liquorice, perverted sexual shenanigans in cramped office spaces, double-crossing Nazi apologists, bald-headed cultural subversives and celebrity deer-culling - this is just a glimpse into the wonderful and frightening world of Perverted by Language. Twenty-three writers choose a song by The Fall and use it as inspiration for a short story. Kicking off with Niall Griffiths' scalding take on the 1978 single, Bingo Master's Break-out, the book culminates with Rebbecca Ray's devilishly saucy take on I Can Hear The Grass Grow. This work is published in association with the inaugural Manchester International Festival (28 June-15 July 2007), the world's first international festival of new work, created by leading artists from across the spectrum of popular culture, innovation and music.
