Why I have it: Downloaded this a fortnight ago. Can’t even remember why.
Summary: Linked short stories about love and infidelity.
I’m thinking: Yes, it’s snappy.
Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas
Why I have it: Clearly I went on some kind of Scarlett Thomas frenzy (she also wrote PopCo which I rejected).
