Based on Death and the Penguin, a darkly comic novel by Andrey Kurkov, Fortunes never kind is a love song between a girl and an obituary writer who's pen seems to have more impact than he'd hope.

This was written for when Andrey Kurkov came to talk about his books at Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights on the 24th August 2011.

Performing are Ben Please and Poppy Pitt of The Bookshop Band.
