You are Not the One

By (author) Vestal McIntyre

This is a debut collection of eight compulsively readable, incredibly perceptive and refreshingly funny stories about today’s brand of social outcasts. Lynn, the protagonist of ‘Binge’, is a forty-something Manhattan pastry chef dabbling with drugs and desperate to feel connected. In ‘Sahara’, a young man is kidnapped whilst wearing a kangaroo suit advertising a fast-food restaurant. And in ‘’ a young woman decides that what is missing from her life is a gay man. You Are Not The One marks the auspicious arrival of an exciting new talent.
