Long winded, unemployed, and timid, on the first date Brendan Bloom is already in love. Comfortably arched over his body, Ryan contemplates murder. Cold, necklace gleaming against the pale tint of her collarbone, the passenger could have mercy. Not a little black book, but a faded love letter out from under the sheets. Some romances ignite on sight, others flare at the base of waterless tubs soaked in agitation. Rooted in the South, this collection of short stories delivers five electric confessions of love, sexuality, and identity across time.
‘Down On The Other Street: Volume I’ is a compilation of short stories about love and relationships. All five are very interesting to read, Jennifer Cie described the emotions that the characters were feeling very vividly. Some themes were problematic, but the author has a great way of telling them.
