Transactions of Desire

(Volume 1)

A collection of short stories exploring the fine line between love, loss and desire.

Heartbreak. This is the preserve of many a fairy tale gone wrong.

Here, the disenchantment of a post-apocalyptic future is explored through stories of lust and yearning, twisted sexuality and repressed desire. Outsiders and lost youth collide in a funfair of their own making.

These tales of unrequited love take place in zoos and churches, in museums and galleries, and in the deepest darkest crevices of each writer’s imagination.

This stand-alone title is published alongside the inaugural exhibition opening at HOME in 2015 (23 May – 26 July 2015). It is the first to be published in HOME’s Transactions of Desire series. The others will follow later in 2015-16.
