First and Fiftieth and other stories
by Martin Foreman
"Trouble is, memory changes things.
Things you want to forget. Things you want to remember that never happened.
Happens to everybody. Gets so, nobody's story's true.
Not yours, not mine. But it's all we got."

"each [story] contains a strong, distinctive and powerful voice . . .
never anything less than diverting"
Gay Times, April 2003

"moving or funny stories told in many voices and with style."
Gay Scotland, November 2002

Fifteen short stories comprising first person narratives spanning the globe from Rio de Janeiro to Los Angeles, Africa to Nepal, London to Siberia. Men and women from teenagers to grandparents each speak in a distinctive voice and with intense emotion as love and sex, violence and humour, anger and pathos meet in this kaleidoscope of human comedy and tragedy. Four of the stories from this collection (Angel, Ben and Joe's, Los Feliz and Sunset) were rewritten and produced as one-(wo)man plays.

Published by Paradise Press in 2002, copies are distributed by Arbery Books at the discounted price of £5.00.
