My First SuicideBook - 2012
The ten short stories straddle the line between intimate revelation and drunken confession. The tales within reveal a nostalgic and poetic author, one who can pen a character's lyrical ode to the fate of his father's perfect chess table in one story and examine a teacher's desperate and dangerous infatuation with a student in the next. There is also a remarkably touching story that begins by describing his narrator's excitement at the possibility of a three-way with a seductive football fan named Anka Chow Chow. Irony, humour, gossip and love with an irresistible readability.
