#19 - Affairs of a Cardiovascular Nature

by Terry Grimwood

Affairs of a Cardiovascular Nature

62 pages

Published March 2021

Terry Grimwood is an author who has made a name for himself with his very powerful, human and wide-ranging fiction, covering horror, speculative, dystopian and other styles. This mini-collection gathers together some of his more innovative and experimental short fiction from all across that range. The title story is a grotesquely hilarious, absurdist and very British tale of love, intrigue and the exchange of hearts that reads like a post-modern PG Wodehouse fever-dream. It is joined by a collection of miniatures in the form of monologues or dialogues, ranging from a dystopian sales pitch and the political horrors revealed through a farcically unnerving interrogation, to a quiet restaurant meeting where the topic of discussion could hardly be greater or more shattering.  Affairs of a Cardiovascular Nature is an unusual example of British slipstream writing, a complex and bittersweet confection that deserves to be taken slowly.
