A bar in Liverpool, January 2nd 2000: Kelly and Victor, both coming down from the recent global party, meet, and some time later that night they are in her bed. The story of Kelly and Victor progresses, through two mirror-image narratives—a story of the growth and spiralling intensity of a sexual obsession, traced to its inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair, spiritual absence and a world swamped with pornography, this is a novel about yearning for union, for purity, and for magic and mystery in a world that denies them all.

From the Publisher:

A bar in Liverpool, January 2nd 2000: Victor meets Kelly. Later that night, he’s in her bed. They both think it’s the best sex they’ve ever had. So the story of Kelly + Victor progresses, through two mirror–image narratives: a story of growth and the spiraling intensity of a sexual obsession, traced to its inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair and a world swamped with pornography, this is a novel about longing—for union, for purity, for magic and mystery in a world that denies them all. Niall Griffiths has been widely hailed as one of the best young writers in Britain; he is the author of Grits and Sheepshagger, which Publishers Weekly called “amazing... a chilling portrait nearly mythological in its intensity.”

From the Inside Flap:

A dark and disturbing new novel about sadomasochism - from the acclaimed author of "Grits and "Sheepshagger.
A bar in Liverpool, January 2, 2000. Victor, coming down from the recent global party, meets a girl. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, he thinks, is the best sex he's ever had. Kelly, coming down after the recent global party, meets a boy. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, she thinks, is the best sex she's ever had.
So the story of "Kelly & Victor progresses, through two mirror-image narratives: the spiraling intensity of a sexual obsession traced to an inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair, spiritual absence and a world swamped with pornography, it is, above all, a love story - or what the 21st-century will allow of one.
