About the Author:

Clive Sinclair is author of four novels: Bibliosexuality, Blood Libels, Cosmetic Effects, and Augustus Rex, and several award-winning collections of short stories. His work, Hearts of Gold, won the Somerset Maugham Award in 1981. His most recent publications include A Soap Opera From Hell: Essays on the Facts of Life and the Facts of Death and Meet the Wife.

Review:

Wildly erotic and weirdly plotted, the subconscious erupting violently into everyday life. . . . It is not for the squeamish or the lazy. [Sinclair's] stories work you hard; tease and torment and shock you. (Financial Times)

An ever-changing kaleidoscope of character and scenery and time, some bewilderingly surreal, others starkly cold. They are powerfully written, extremely clever and very unpleasant. (The Times)

Disconcerting brilliance, crazy humor and perfect control. . . . [Sinclair] threads together West Coast argot, psychiatrists' newspeak, Yiddish, Hebrew, and can casually pop in an overhead exchange in a Cambridge pub so that it sounds just as outlandish. (Observer)

If you're interested in compellingly unpleasant but brilliantly written short stories, then you will sit up all night with Clive Sinclair's latest collection. Your sleep (when it comes) will then be interspersed with nightmares about stabbings, rape, treachery, illness, blood, revenge and death. (Yorkshire Post)

Words come flying up at you from all angles . . . marvelously funny . . . he will make you laugh aloud. (Punch)
