Perverted by Language Summary

Perverted by Language by Peter Wild

Mechanical ducks, shark women that taste of liquorice, perverted sexual shenanigans in cramped office spaces, double-crossing Nazi apologists, bald-headed cultural subversives and celebrity deer-culling ? this is just a glimpse into the wonderful and frightening world of Perverted by Language. Twenty-three writers choose a song by The Fall and use it as inspiration for a short story. Kicking off with Niall Griffiths? scalding take on the 1978 single, ?Bingo Master?s Break-out?, the book culminates with Rebbecca Ray?s devilishly saucy take on ?I Can Hear The Grass Grow?.

Perverted by Language Reviews

The best stories are laterally-minded flights of fancy... they nudge at the secrets contained in hidden worlds and parallel universes. It's this precise restraint that tantalises * Herald *
Writers known and less so who've each managed to bring some fresh hell to MES's already weird and frightening world... a triumph -- Stuart Maconie * Word Magazine *
Excellent * Independent on Sunday *
Defiantly uncompromising... successfully evokes the spirit of The Fall * Daily Telegraph *
Innovative and imaginative * Time Out *
A witty, dark and often surreal anthology that's as enjoyably anarchic as Smith himself * Metro *
