Modern Times

Sweeney, Cathy

£14.99

The stories in this collection range from the absurd: a world beset by a sickness that slowly turns everyone blue; a woman who rears a child that gets older, but never ages; a wife making friends with her husband’s sex-doll – to the sublime: a man reconnecting with his estranged daughter through homemade movies filmed on a non-existent camera, a woman saving a child from a train wreck.

Description

There once was …

a woman who loved her husband’s cock so much that she began taking it to work in her lunchbox.

a man who made films without a camera, which transfixed his estranged daughter.

a couple who administered electric shocks to each other, to be reminded of what love is.

a world where you wake up one day and notice that, one by one, people are turning blue

Startling, wry, beguiling and emotionally charged – the stories in Modern Times might be reminiscent of Lydia Davis, Angela Carter and Daisy Johnson, but they are also unlike anything you’ve read before.
