She has also been a respected reader of tarot cards with a devoted following of customers. In addition to divination, Angela also reads young adult fiction on recorded books and has received awards, notably best actress, for her sensitive narrations of stories about troubled girls.

    ABOUT THE AUTHORS

    Huw Lemmey is an artist and writer based in London. He writes on digital culture, sexuality and politics for Rhizome, The New Inquiry and The White Review, and blogs under the name @spitzenprodukte at libcom.org. Lemmey’s most recent book, CHUBZ: The Demonization of my Working Arse is the following: “we are in the middle of a brutally dry and hot London summer some time after 2011 — some time, that is, after the mass riots of August 2011, which are still fresh in the minds of the author and his fellow Londoners. It could easily happen again. Chubz, the eponymous protagonist of the book, states it plainly in the first pages: “I didn’t want a job this summer, I wanted to fuck, and I wanted stuff to kick off. I felt angry, too, right.” (flashartonline.com)

    Onyeka Igwe is a documentary filmmaker from London. She came to filmmaking from a radical political activist experience, hoping to develop a filmmaking practice as a way of doing politics. Onyeka's filmmaking is dominated by interest in identity, politics, culture and place. She has been supported by the BFI and the European Cultural Fund and has screened at festivals and galleries across the UK and Europe.
