Blurb

This is East London, where talk is cheap and beer is dear and everyone but you has an ironic tattoo. And this is a story of millennial men: of cobbled identity, flawed friendship and terrible love. René Dubois-Williams is thirty, and at a low ebb in his life. Jobless, loveless and living with his indulgent mother, there appear to be no limits to the depths of his degradation. But a chance encounter with a couple of old school friends—the pathologically charming Madoc, and Niceguy™ Howard—will set all three on a tortuous path of self-discovery; careering wildly through betrayal, redemption, triumph and despair. Will René finally find love with the remote and enigmatic Flame? Can Howard hang on to his bored and restless girlfriend, Anna? What will Madoc do with the body? Find out all this, and more, in… EAST OF EVERYTHING A sensational new epic, by A. O. K. Simpson

Prologue

We are Millennials.

We are Generation Centenarian.

We will live to a hundred and work every day of it.

We part-time painters and temporary troubadours; heroes of the zero hour—we are the grasping descendants of a murderous, sly, conniving, infinitely inventive and self-destructive great ape. He tamed fire to chase away the dark and it hasn’t stopped running since.

When the lights cut out and the earth goes dark and the planes and markets crash, our parents will be long gone but we will be here to tell the young about our age: when the shadow earth stood a shining colossus—a gigantic hive-mind that shared our selves instantly and everywhere. The water was clean and cool and food grew beneath our feet. We were fat and angry, and there were billions of us. We were as ants on the ground.
