Virgin in the Gym and Other Stories

book
2004
In Wendy's second collection of stories, she casts a candid eye on the foibles and neuroses of contemporary society. Many of her characters are living on a cliff-edge, prey to wild obsessions and guilt-edged insecurities, or struggling between doubt and faith, submission and revolt.

Passion features in all its forms, from religious devotion to devotionless sex, and the darker side of love and sex is presented with startling honesty. Yet humour is never far away as Perriam probes the peaks and troughs of human hopes and desires, combining a talent for social satire with a deep compassion for her quirky cast of characters.

Witty and wicked by turn, this collection will leave the reader unsettled but exhilarated.
