Welcome to Joseph Darlington's Website
I promise to stop writing about myself in the third-person from here on in.
I'm working on a new novel called The Size Tool. I'll post chapters as and when they're done. It's more for my benefit than yours so please stop complaining about my shitty website. Yes, I have heard of squarespace. Please follow me on twitter for updates anyway.
I also have a short story collection: Avon Murray. Mondo cheap, good purchase. I've already made my money back on them so go nuts on the savings.
As for the rest of the website, well I hope it serves as representative portfolio of my work. I’m a lifelong resident of the North and I think it’s fair to say that it’s to Manchester in particular that I owe the “quaint but grim” stuff I write about; or “Powerhouse Gothic”, as I like to call it. I’ve some short stories here, and poetry here, as well as a section on my academic work here.
Over the years I’ve also written two unpublished novels, two unperformed plays, a number of short films that actually got made, three albums (two with Homeless Joe and one with Al and the Q’aidas), some political pamphlets and tons of other crap which is of no use to anybody.
Thanks very much for visiting and I hope you are mildly amused.
[Oh, and the Josef spelling is for screenwriting credits - in case you were wondering]
