Brian Wilson in Swansea Bus Station
Published by Red Squirrel Press
Packed with Fulton’s trademark energy, intense driving rhythms, hard humour and baffled humanity, Brian Wilson in Swansea Bus Station carries us on a wild febrile trip, encountering many people and places, ‘normality’and ‘order’ in all its guises. At the end of the day mortality is the great leveller, and fame and success are a misty illusion, whether it’s an icon, a pop star, a comedian, a scientist, or a Nobel prize winning writer. We have to keep on trying, even though we know we’re all random particles happily travelling to dust on a bus.
