“The room in my house, which is a clutter of unpacked boxes and shit, is our office. My seven year old calls it our IT room. I write there. I can write anywhere. I like the mess. I like the chaos. Order troubles me. The street is Mile End Road running through the heart of London’s East End. The East End is a place that provokes and surprises and inspires me. It fills me with a sense of history and the potential of the best of the UK.”
