Under The Arcade
It’s the hottest day of the year in the south London suburbs and Jackson’s feeling restless.
Today is the anniversary of his brother’s death, a young boxer who killed a man in the ring – then took his own life in guilt. Roaming the streets he grew up in, Jackson wants only to forget. But in his hometown, beneath the growing neglect and urban decay, the past is waiting for him at every corner: and all he can do is remember.
