A bar in Liverpool January 2nd 200: VICTOR meets a girl. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, he thinks, is the best sex he's ever had. KELLY meets a boy. Some time later that night he is in her bed. This, she thinks, is the best sex she's ever had. So the story of Kelly + Victor progresses, through two mirror-image narratives: a story of the growth and spiralling intensity of sexual obsession, traced to its inevitable, devastating conclusion. Set against a backdrop of urban despair, spiritual absence adn a world swamped with pornography, this is a novel about yearning for union, for purity, and for magic and mystery ina world that denies them all. And it is, above everything, a love story - or all that 21st century Britain will allow of one.
