The Morley brand of fictional cigarettes have appeared in film and TV productions since the 1960s. With their distinctive, strangely familiar packaging, Morleys have latterly become a fans’ in-joke, a symbol of knowing deception, a fiction within fictions, an artwork within artworks. For this volume, writers, poets, artists and theorists responded to the Morley fiction, through works that consider the packet, the deep breath and the temporal break afforded by the disappearing ritual of cigarette smoking.
