Dangerous Pleasures: A Decade of Stories by Patrick Gale
I bought this book having read Gale's more recent collection of short stories, 'Gentleman's Relish', and, having enjoyed that, saw this and decided it was a must. This book is from an earlier stage in Gale's career, and with this the writing is slightly more experimental, and deeply sexual in content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but beware..., 11 July 2010
This fan certainly looks the part, with the chrome and black plastic. It is also very effective and on the highest setting provides an especially powerful cooling device in the summer heat. However, you should be warned, when compared to other fans, this isn't exactly quiet...although on the lowest setting it seems to quieten down after a few seconds, it is still rather loud, and by the time it is on the highest setting, I certainly find it difficult to sleep with such a noise. My advice would be to see whether it gives some details of its noise output and then try to compare it to another model/make.

I think that it's fair to say that I came across this book by chance. I was browsing through the newly-released Philosophy books and there it was, 'Etre the Cow'. I was slightly confused as to why such a book would appear in the Philosophy section, so I decided to click on it and read the blurb. With no reviews and no blurb on amazon, I decided to 'google' it. And there we are - on the website - rave reviews, and interesting yet slightly bizarre plot line, and an unheard of author...it was a must buy!

For your information, this is what the book's website has to say about it:

Extraordinary books are born in extraordinary times. In the 1940s Orwell's Animal Farm served… Read more
