Too Beautiful for You by Rod Liddle
Too Beautiful for You by Rod Liddle is a collection of stories concerning the sexual escapades of denizens of South London. There's Christian, returning from an adulterous encounter when he's injured in a train wreck, but somehow still trying to bolster his lie as to exactly where he's been. A father, hitting on a nurse while his son is born, is convinced, to the point of madness, that his son can recite the names of the players of the Chelsea FC. An executive, tired of sexual rejection, contemplates the best place in the office to commit suicide. These are some of the stories of people infatuated with having sex, or not getting sex, usually with all the wrong people. The Independent says of Too Beautiful for You, "[T]hese are burstingly funny stories, tapping straight into the heart of our worst urban hypocrisies and self-delusions."
