Depressing tale of modern courtship,
This review is from: The Bird Room (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This dark tale of modern morality and dating is mercifully short but non-the-less depressing for that. Two young men, both called Will, live in a provincial city and are uneasy friends. One Will, despite no decernible charm or talent is a success with the ladies and a famous artist, the other Will seems to be a bit of a loser. One of the Wills is living with Alice and she seems to be in love with him but a dangerous obsession leads their relationship to break down. An actress called Clair / Helen is also making a living performing in amateur internet porn films and becomes involved with the convoluted narrative which leads to a twisting of identities. This is a disturbing tale of modern relationships, which don't seem to be based on trust and love but on porn and lust.
