Lines From London

Daniel Canty, author of Wigrum (2013) and Les États-unis du vent (to be published in English by Talonbooks in 2015), is currently in London, England at the Studio du Québec, where he is in the midst of a six-month residency. He sent us an envy-inducing photograph of his writing life and wrote a few rather Wigrumian lines about it from across the pond…

This is the first day of fog over London. I have my 35mm Rollei and b/w Ilford films at the ready. I think I purchased the last roll of HD400 from the old camera joint next to the London Review Bookshop; next time I went there, it was closed and had been completely emptied. Writing residencies encourage metaphorical interpretations of the world.
