Gentle, witty and sometimes disturbing, DANGEROUS PLEASURES is Patrick Gale's first collection of much loved short stories

'Nattily subversive, sexually ambiguous, intelligent and disturbing. The prose sizzles with acidic observation' Sunday Times

A funeral party ends in an unexpected manner; parents are faced with difficult decisions about their daughter; a housewife transforms her personality with a simple touch-up; a father's trip to his former school brings back memories of love he thought buried forever.

From gothic thrills and twisted comedy to moving family vignettes, Dangerous Pleasures offers a memorable collection of Patrick Gale's brilliant short stories of marriage, sex and mortality.

Praise for Dangerous Pleasures

  • Sly, cool and mischievous - Guardian

  • Nattily subversive, sexually ambiguous, intelligent and disturbing. The prose sizzles with acidic observation - Sunday Times

  • Gale has long been a master of short fiction. So it comes as no surprise to find that his first collection of stories shows him to be an adept of the art ... the form utilises all his strengths of acute observation, gentle wit and humane acceptance of human diversity ... Wit and wisdom, metaphor and moment constantly combine to delight - The Times

  • Not one of these eleven stories is a dud. Witty, moving and very much alive - Time Out
