Kevin E.G. Perry is a freelance writer and foreign correspondent who has filed copy from India, Cambodia, Hungary and the Democratic Republic of Congo. He lived for a year in a small town in rural Orissa where one of the few widely available English-language books was a study guide to 'Waiting for Godot'. It passed the time, but the time would have passed in any case. His work has appeared in The Guardian, The Quietus and Drowned in Sound as well as on countless discarded beermats, napkins and cigarette papers.
