Jonathan Tulloch & Mary Colson

Picnic basket

Jonathan Tulloch revisits the end of the world, and Mary Colson confronts some ominous quiet. Jonathan Tulloch takes us to a Cumbrian riverbank, circa 1983, for a picnic eagerly awaiting the end of the world at half past three (please pass the ham sandwiches.) Mary Colson faces down the aimlessness and lack of purpose that takes hold when a book has been finished, but hasn’t yet found its place in the world.
