4 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Together for the first time, the collected short stories of Patrick Gale including DANGEROUS PLEASURES and GENTLEMAN'S RELISH

THREE DECADES OF STORIES is a unique collection of Patrick Gale's two volumes of dark, moving, often witty and eccentric stories, GENTLEMAN'S RELISH and DANGEROUS PLEASURES. It also includes the acclaimed long story, CAESAR'S WIFE.

Ranging from a lonely prisoner governor's wife, to a housewife desperate for a makeover; a father's trip to his former school to a long-term mistress offered an unexpected marriage, this is a volume that highlights Patrick Gale's skill of digging beneath the surface of relationships and exposing the often brutal mechanisms that drive them.

Praise for Three Decades of Stories

  • Sly, cool and mischievous - Guardian

  • The short story form suits Gale's ability to zoom in on the smallest nuances of a relationship - The Times

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

  • Dark, witty and often obliquely moving, these are tales of difficult fathers and gay sons, of lonely wives and random or deliberate acts of violence ... Gale is interested in power and the lack of it and his stories pull the reader in unexpected ways, offering worlds that are far from certain and where love or its absence can never be predicted - Sunday Telegraph
