I have a lot of romance on my to read pile. I’m taking a break from it, so I can go back fresh and excited into my genre. I’m so excited about this British author’s work. He is inspired by none other than the main man Stephen King himself so this should be good. I’ve got my Author Review Copy and I’m starting today! Keep an eye out on Meet The Author, I’ve interviewed Jack Binding and all I’m saying is… I could not keep a straight face!! You’ll love him. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
Jack Binding’s Pills splices gritty realism with surreal imagery and otherworldly dread.
From the vicious high fashion horror of FMM (The Devils Wears Prada via Bret Easton Ellis-esque debauchery) to the stark, unsettling heartbreak of Sleeping Pills, Binding takes the reader on a journey through the secret parts of London that few people ever visit.
Influenced by writers such as Stephen King, Martin Amis and JG Ballard, there’s Cronenberg-inspired body horror, creepy kids (and their creepier parents), death, love (often unrequited), seedy massage parlours and late nights fuelled with lust and narcotics.
With overarching themes and characters, the 18 short stories in Pills can be read either as a whole enjoyed as stand-alone tales.
