Synopsis

"The four things you can't live without: air, water, shelter, sleep.

Some questions. The last book you read: none. Sexual preferences: I hesitated on that one. An internet blind date; a fuck buddy; a man who is writing a book called The Adulterer's Guide; a couple venturing out on their first foursome; a man waiting to see his children again after a divorce; a woman planning to seduce a friend's husband."

Frank, witty, disturbing and ultimately compassionate, The Last Book You Read marks the debut of a powerful new voice. These stories tell of people caught between places and lovers, between the USA and Scotland, between desire, addiction and regret. From this collection emerges a singular picture of modern-day relationships, their conflicts and passions.

Male or female; gay or straight; young or old; married, single or divorced - the difficult loves of the contemporary urban world are charted with clarity and assurance.

External Reviews

"I've read them all. And pretty much enjoyed them. They are all about relationships, about people, mostly dysfunctional people, or perhaps ordinary people in dysfunctional relationships. Ewan Morrison describes the minutiae of relationships, the intimately, personal and often explicitly sexual details of people and their relationships." - Goodreads Review.
