Dead Letter House
On Hogmanay a 20-something breaks up with his girlfriend at a party in Glasgow and sets out to walk the 20 miles home to East Kilbride. On the way he amuses himself by writing imaginary letters in his head to his estranged family in between buying drugs, crashing parties, getting stabbed, losing his contact lenses and getting beaten up. This upbeat story spins into the surreal as the narrator begins to near East Kilbride. Is the main character dead? Tripping? A ghost? A grimly humored story that ends poignantly.
