Petrol Horses by Jonny Collider


Petrol Horses by Jonny Collider

Jonny's French girlfriend returns to visit family and earn for her studies the following year. She works as a lifeguard and is living in a beach house over summer. Now Jonny is set to visit her. Baby's visions of lazing on sand when not enjoying drink and sex soon go awry though. Unwanted guests, ill timed drunkenness and arrests put paid to any hopes of harmony. Meanwhile the pair deal with fights, hallucinations and a disastrous tennis match that sends Jonny home with things in the balance.
