Christopher Burns (1944 ….

Angelo’s Passion

Chosen from  The Minerva Book of Short Stories, (1988), edited by Giles Gordon and David Hughes.  The only way to get hold of copy of the collection seems to be through on-line second hand book shops.

The notes in the back of the book suggest that Angelo’s `Passion  was included in his collection entitled About the Body, also published in 1988.   Christopher burns write both novels and short stories nad ives in Cumbria.

in this story, Angelo has made a career of picking up women, whom he keeps until he is tired of them, or until the flow of cash dries up.  In what seems to be a mutually agreeable contract, i was left with a question around who was using who.
