  July 20   IT’S MY PARTY       The party I was throwing for myself in addiction was nothing but a very long wake.  There were no smiles, only murmurs of what might have been.  I was filled with tears I couldn’t cry and mourned my death as I caused it.  When...

I was at this party in a derelict hotel. The party was Mulligan’s, a shadowy leather boy I’d only heard of in passing whispers of disquiet. Along crumbling hallways I lurched, spliffed and looking for a light, past occasional knots of revelers, half-open doors like half-open eyes squinting at...

  When I was nine years old, and we were living in Nice, I would sit by the window, in my pyjamas, and watch the neighbours leave home to go to various New Year’s Eve festivities.  The men all wore black tie, and the women slunk and sparkled.  I gazed and sighed, with occasional...

I’m stretched out on my bed, half my legs hanging over the end, as usual. Outside in the hall I can hear voices raised in protest against Miki’s assertion that the party is definitely fucking over. He jumps back into the room, shoulders the door shut, locks and dead-bolts it, kills the lights...

But in the end it’s Mulligan and Dik that get to shag America, or at least a couple of long-legged, dusky stripper groupies. I half-heartedly toy with a couple of dodgy-looking punkette boilers who, in spite of how much I drink stoutly (sic) continue to look like something from one of Hogarth’s...
