Description - Seconds of Pleasure by Neil LaBute

'Seconds of Pleasure occupies the same disturbing, deceitful territory as Neil LaBute's plays: acts of murder, adultery and incest are recounted in casually cruel prose that is deeply unsettling to the soul.' Glasgow Herald 'There's no doubting LaBute's gift for creating compelling characters.' Marie Claire 'LaBute has an intuitive ear for character and voice, a surgical eye for detail and a dramatic sense of how to affect the kind of twist that can make the reader physically gasp.' Observer 'The power of LaBute's stories lies in the sense that they could be about anyone - indeed, your friends and neighbours.' Independent
