Wasted in Love

by Allan Wilson

A stunning debut by a brilliant new author. I know that you have heard that before, but this time it's true. These stories are witty, intelligent, compassionate, heart-rending, heart-warming and lyrical - beautifully written. Allan Wilson has an understanding heart. Drink deep from this new well. Savour these waters of life.

Steven was not really wanting to see this type of thing. He was drunk.

From Important Things To Do.
