The big book of Death, Sex & Chocolate
“Oh, corpses, you know,” he said with a wave of his hand. “Always farting.”
Macrae sighed, and mentally crossed Aeros off his snack list.
A man obsessed with chocolate is found dead, his corpse transformed into a work of art; a dictator prepares to face God following his assassination; a sheep runs a paramilitary unit to harass motorists; a sex industry worker prepares for his rebirth as a woman; a black widow spider rebels against his fate.
Across twelve connected stories, these are some of the characters wrestling with the meaning of life, the pursuit of pleasure and the sucker-punch of mortality. Mordant, challenging, dark and funny, the book asks big questions – and looks for answers.
Di Reed has come up with a fabulous new book, weird and wonderful, dark and funny. Definitely worth a read!!
