The summer myself and my sister moved to Cornwall after my graduation to live in a caravan and become fully-certified beach bums, I remember feeling both at once a lasting sense of grown-up freedom coasting alongside the fear of being set loose and thinking "So what now?".

Staying Sane in the New World

I started my journey to publicise the book in New York. Everyone tells me they love New York, to me it's a gang rape on the senses. I want to confess war crimes after being kept up all night listening to trash trucks clanging. I took the subway late one night after a show, waited two hours for the right train and witnessed bedlam; feral people were howling like wolves...

The So So Glos are a band that inspires a wealth of music writing clichés. They're a 'band of the people', they are 'DIY heroes', they 'mean it, man'. The thing about these four guys from Brooklyn is they genuinely are all those things.

Tossing you up to stomach-churning heights, it's as quick to turn around and peg you in your place just when you feel you've got it, that you're a part of it , that every lesson life has taught you up to this point has merely been a means for preparing you for the daily jostle.

Jumping on the Airtrain to bring me to Howard Beach and the subway line, I ride the A train all the way to 59th and Columbus Circle. Stepping into the frenzied mid-town street, half blinded by the reflecting blaze of the afternoon sun on a glassy skyscraper I think if only happiness such as this could be bottled and bought. Out here, I sing, a fish can breathe.

Their 'evidence' that evolution didn't happen is based on a book of fiction, and consists of a belief that God planted dinosaur bones in the earth in order to test our faith. Like the climate change deniers, they also have a small amount of professors, scientists and experts who all claim that their beliefs are credible.

It had been a pretty average day. Tying up the laces of my trainer, ready for an evening run I received an email on my phone. At around 8PM I assumed it was probably another pointless message from some brand I had unwittingly subscribed to, and as my finger poised to sweep it into the virtual rubbish bin; I saw the title "NYU Admissions Decision".
