Imogen came to Paris believing it to be the city of romance and love – of starlit clichés – yet hadn’t considered that it had also been surrealism’s birthplace.
In the Paris from which Andre Breton spun his webs of wild revolutionary art and which Louis Aragon documented through le merveilleux quotidien, Andrew Hook weaves the poignant and erotic story of a British expatriate and her increasingly surreal quest for sexual fulfilment – a beautiful journey from the familiar to a place where sex itself becomes the ultimate unreality.
Andrew was born in 1967 in Norwich and began writing in 1987, with the assistance of the Government's Enterprise Allowance Scheme. After a period of travelling he continued writing in his spare time and his first published story was "Pussycat" in 1994. Since then he has had over 90 separate short story sales, one novel and two novellas published, and four short story collections. These were in a variety of genres, although slipstream is his default style.
