The Wall In The Head

The Wall in The Head is about two doomed lovers called Donald and Belinda.

It's a black comedy about love and loss, and sadness and failure. It's about building and rebuilding. It's about how the grand plans we have for our lives, for our careers,  never turn out the way we thought they would.

It's about the crappy TV shows Donald writes and the past that haunts him. It follows Donald's journey to Leeds, Sheffield, London... and Belinda's home town, Berlin. But the place at the centre of it all is Birmingham - the weirdest city of them all...

How it works

The book will be delivered in 10 instalments (or staves), one every day. The instalments are delivered to your Pigeonhole bookshelf on your IOS or Android app, plus you can read on our web reader. You will receive an email letting you know when each stave is available.

We believe that shared reading leads to new ideas and connections. That’s why we have a dynamic commenting system which allows in-text discussion between our readers. Post a comment and all your fellow readers will be able to respond. You can also choose to receive notifications (customise them here) when someone responds to your comment, or, additionally, whenever a comment is left in the book.

As you read you will see round purple icons at the edge of certain paragraphs – tap on these to reveal behind-the-scenes extra content!

Links will be included at the end of the final stave which will allow you to leave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. The full book will be available on your Pigeonhole bookshelf for one month for you to read at your leisure.
