Minotaur in Love

Fraser Harrison

I found this painful to read and suffered along with Bruno as he describes his difficult and lonely life - but it is also hugely funny in a grim kind of way - and once started I just had to know if there was any escape from the maze for him.

Extract

What is hard to grasp if you haven't experienced it at first hand is that hatred and duty are not incompatible. My father was a man who always did his duty, as he conceived it. He never failed, therefore, to do his duty by the institution of fatherhood, and if it required him to give bicycles at the appropriate age, the best that money could buy, he did so, regardless of his feelings for the recipient.
