A thrilling multiracial gay romance from NAACP Image Award Nominee John R Gordon.

Take it to the bridge

A night of shocking violence, a sultry summer of passion, a post-9/11 London of vinyl, video-cassettes and postal lonelyhearts. An Afro-boho city sweaty with oil-paint and sex, music, art and dance.

Meet bebop-cool Malcolm and wigger rudeboy Luke, avant-garde schizophrenic Ziggy and ghost-ridden dancer-choreographer George, seekers of love, running from buried truths that by the summer’s end they all must face.

Murder, bereavement, Vodou, twins and madness; new love on the rack. Will it – will they – survive?


'An interracial love story set in urban London that’s full of unforgettable characters.'
