The Last Book You Read by Ewan Morrison

The Last Book You Read

Ewan Morrison

Fourteen vivid and powerful short stories which read more like a novel about modern life. These are dark tales of divorce, of separation and alienation, of what it is like to be alone in the city or alone in a marriage. Ordinary people seek consolation in drink, internet dating, straight and gay sex, text messaging. Morrison does not judge but treats them all with compassion.

Extract

Then there was the reply from the Wall Street trader who wanted to save me from myself with line dancing and Jesus. Two offers from mixed race couples looking for a threesome. One, from a man who called himself a magician, containing words like sexploration and had a link to a web site with hand-carved dildos that he called wands.
New York - so many people wanting to fuck themselves into a different life.
