Will Ashon & Michal Novosad

Rafal's Saga [William Morris Gallery]


“What kind of story you want? Rough story or nice story?”

A collaboration between author Will Ashon and Michal Novosad, 'Rafal’s Saga' presents a tale of homeless life in London: the difficulties, the despair, the endless problems, but also the humanity and humour and, most of all, the heartbreaking beauty of being alive.

As William Morris pointed out, the most grinding poverty is a trifling evil compared with the inequality of classes and this inequality of class is crystallised in the decisions we make when we see someone begging. Michal tells the story of the death of his friend, Rafal, and in doing so forces us to confront what it means if and when we calculate whether someone is worthy of receiving our small change.
