Metrophilias



My review of Brendan Connell's Metrophilias is on
The Short Review's website
. It's my latest book review, and just for your amusement here is a little snippet...

This book is filled with drunks, miscreants and sexual degenerates. Many of the characters seemed scarred or ugly in some way. We have stories about masochists, sadists, cannibals, erotic-pyromaniacs, and characters obsessed with carpets, noses, soft toys, and broken bones, for example. There is a man who finds a woman's head in the trash, takes it home and falls in love with her. There is a woman who, literally, gets sexual pleasure from the holy cross.
