'April is the Cruellest Month' discussed the mnemonic quality of geography and photography.
Geography is experienced as physically, in that one can inhabit the site. However
photography is also a physical site in that it has a physical quality - the 2d physicality of the
photograph and the three dimensionality of the space represented as well as the fourth
dimension - the time represented by the image. This piece of creative writing weaves between
the dimensions of the present, the remembered time and the imaginary time of photographs,
the time we did not experience directly but have with which we have a vivid intimate
connection. There is a long tradition of literature that transcends that artificial boundary
