Infidelities

By (author) Kirsty Gunn

This new collection of stories offers a candid peek at infidelity in all its guises. These are tales of lust, deceit, resentment and regret – and of the secrets and lies that can chip away at human relationships. In a series of interwoven dramas, we find mothers yearning for adventure, for the exhilaration of the open road or the anonymity of the forest; fathers absent in body or mind; husbands who look the other way; complacency turned to spite and apathy turned to betrayal. At the same time Gunn pursues the glorious rush of a snap decision, the liberty of answering that siren call of a better life elsewhere. Written with Gunn’s trademark attention to nuances of behaviour, motive and even landscape, Infidelity is a temptingly beautiful work that asks ‘What if?’ and dares to find out.
