First and Fiftieth by Martin Foreman

by Martin Foreman


REVIEW AND LINK

First person narratives spanning the globe from Rio de Janeiro to
Los Angeles, Africa to Nepal, London to Siberia. Men and women, teenagers to grandparents, each speak in a distinctive voice
as love and sex, violence and humour, anger and pathos meet
in this kaleidoscope of human comedy and tragedy.

A Sense of Loss
and other stories


A Sense of Loss by Martin Foreman

by Martin Foreman


REVIEW AND LINK

Fifteen short stories displaying a counterpoint of different voices. Some reflect the shifting kaleidoscope of gay reality in 1990s UK: others take the readers to wider horizons - to Brazil and landscapes of allegory and myth. In the masterful title story we hear the voice of the silent Tadzio from Thomas Mann's classic Death in Venice.

soft cover, 186pp, ISBN 0-85449-185-6

Martin Foreman is the author of two novels, two short story collections and several plays, all available from Arbery Books. He is the winner of the 2012 London Solo Festival New Writing Award and the 2018 Pitlochry Festival Theatre Short Play Award. In August 2018 he is directing two of his plays - his adaptation of Ben Jonson's Jacobean comedy Volpone and a new one-act drama Casanova Dreaming - at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Martin was born in Dundee, went to school and university in Edinburgh, then spent many years working and living in London and across the world. He has returned to live in Edinburgh and does not expect to move far from the city again. He dislikes categories but for those who insist on them, he is a British writer who happens to be gay and whose primary themes are love, loss and the intensity of emotions. As well as writing, he acts occasionally on stage and in short films.
