How To Succeed in Failure While Trying Really, Really Hard

Jonathan Collings

In this reading from a work in progress I’ll take you back to the 60s and 70s, long before the introduction of mobile phones and contactless debit cards, a time when life was simpler and, paradoxically, more complicated. People, though, were much the same – indeed, some of us who were around in the 60s and 70s are still here. Still hanging on. Still trying not to fail.

And what will be the outcome? Will our hero emerge triumphant? Will he, ultimately, find success? Who knows? I certainly don’t – I still haven’t finished writing the book.
