'This Is How You Disappear' by Allen Miles

I've just finished reading this book and quite simply cannot recommend it highly enough. If any of you enjoy things that are a little gloomy, or a lot for that matter, and I know there's more than a few of you that fit that description, then this collection of short stories is for you.

They are real, touching and honest. Sometimes painfully so. They are also acerbically funny at times too. They are the literary equivalent of an evening spent alone with a bottle of wine and the Manics, The Cure and The Smiths on your CD player.

They won't always make you feel happy but they will definitely make you feel. They say that misery loves company and if that is true then you won't find any better company than this. Anywhere.
