STEVEN BERKOFF BUY
'Loneliness is a solitary profession. You can smell lonely person. They stink of something that has an edge of fear t it. Like a plant not watered curls at the edges. A bit brown. But the horror of it is feeling like a non-living...'
The characters in this collection of short stories are sexual and spiritual outsiders. They long and hope for love and understanding, for sex... to live. In reality they end up having outrageous, bleak, almost farcical sexual encounters.
There is Doris, cleaner in a lodging house for ageing unmarried men... an old has-been who turns to the Gods of synthetic sex... a former Mecca dance-hall habitué, marooned in her bedsit... and Harry. H is the literary descendant of Kafka's K; he is an actor, down at heel, out of work, and out of love...
No act or thought is too private or taboo for Berkoff to put on the page.
The present edition of Gross Intrusion and Other Stories include two new pieces: Actor and Hell.
