Scary Old Sex


Modern and Classic Literary Fiction Relationship Stories

Scary Old Sex Synopsis

A woman goes about certain rituals of sex with her second husband, sharing the bed with the ghosts of her sexual past. A beautiful young art student embarks on an affair with a much older, married, famous artist. A middle-aged woman struggles with the decline of her mother, once glamorous and still commanding; their fraught relationship causes unexpected feelings both shaming and brutal. A man finds that his father has died while in the midst of extra-marital sex and wonders what he should do with the body. And a boy sits in his Calculus class, fantasizing about a schoolmate's breasts and worrying about his father lying in hospital, as outside his classroom window the Twin Towers begin to fall.

Scary Old Sex Press Reviews

'What an astonishing collection! I absolutely loved these stories, so stylish, earthy and funny - and underneath them, thrumming away, a sense of our own mortality' Deborah Moggach

'Perceptive and unflinching ... She writes with such verve and kindness about her characters and their sex lives - their fears, phobias and muddles - that you can't help but smile' -- Mavis Cheek
