a lively provincial town in the West of England
"Pick a day, any day; I slam my door, throw myself headlong onto my bed and split a vast Brueghelian scream over the silent semi. It shatters and cascades like a Methuselah of bad champagne over the house in a Bristol suburb where I live with my parents and the dog. My parents look at each other quickly, each pretending not to have heard it. The dog whimpers in its sleep; it's having a bad dream. So am I. It's called LIVING IN FUCKING BRISTOL."
