Publisher's Summary

Gentle, witty and sometimes disturbing, Dangerous Pleasures is Patrick Gale's first collection of much-loved short stories. 

A funeral party ends in an unexpected manner; parents are faced with difficult decisions about their daughter; a housewife transforms her personality with a simple touch-up; a father's trip to his former school brings back memories of love he thought buried forever. 

From Gothic thrills and twisted comedy to moving family vignettes, Dangerous Pleasures offers a memorable collection of Patrick Gale's brilliant short stories of marriage, sex and mortality.

Critic Reviews

"Nattily subversive, sexually ambiguous, intelligent and disturbing. The prose sizzles with acidic observation." (Sunday Times
