“MY POLICEMAN” BETHAN ROBERTS

Poignant   heartwrenchingly so

evocative of 50s brighton

picture of west Pier, before dereliction. on cover

spare, taught, beautiful prose

a  moving love triangle: openly gay man , closeted gay man and a woman

you FEEL you are in Brighton in the repressed world of illegal homosexual acts ;

influenced, self-aknowledgedly by Roberts, by Peter Wildeblood’s story

this kind of shit happened …..

and still sometimes does:

people’s lives were/are damagedhttp://artswrap.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/event_image_full/Bethan%20Roberts.jpg

{I am inserting link to cover not for commecial purposes, but so you can see for yourself how beautiful  and evocative the picture of the lost West Pier of Brighton is}
