With unsentimental prose and ironic dialogue, Katie Boland brings to life a variety of characters who all have one thing in common--a need for something more. A literary debut by a refreshing new voice in fiction, the stories in "Eat Your Heart Out" are about the haunted and heartbroken, about dreamers, losers and love-lost souls. From a sixteen-year-old autistic savant who's sleeping with his best friend's mother, to a tattooed beauty coming to terms with an alcoholic parent, to a newspaper man forever changed by a tender drifter, to a grief counsellor trying to reconcile her own tragic loss, the stories examine the fragility of human relationships and why people love the way they do.Bold, poignant and affecting, "Eat Your Heart Out" is a clear-eyed exploration of youth, life, love, sex, and death.
