Writer in Residence 2016/17
Cally Spooner

As Whitechapel Gallery Writer in Residence, Cally Spooner is starting to write a new novel. Uploaded sporadically to the website, a map of potential starts, plots and snippets of dialogue between possible characters arrive, distributed across a continuous page of A4 width and undetermined length.

 

12.06, Athens
defective baboon — a baboon who doesn’t give up
United in stomach flu, London weeps.
090 11 980/ 702
Fired like a dog
18.15, London
(in great spasms of confinement)
Feed AND Breed? No way !?!
More marauding wolves.
‘Cecilia’s demise’
The amygdala created the fear state.
You CAN’T do THAT HERE.
Kevin. Who’s your manager?
