The Homeless Heart-Throb

by Crystal Jeans - £8.99  Honno Ltd (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781912905010 | ISBN 10: 1912905019

How funny! How dysfunctional. This is what it really means to be British, she thought. Everybody separate behind their walls and everybody drinking...
 
Dennis has been carrying a torch for Gareth Moon since school; Sez conducts a psychological experiment with himself and two jam-jars the subjects; Estela spends sultry summer afternoons observing her neighbours over the fence; Hatima searches for an errant octogenarian in the local hostelries… Each of them encounters Monsterberry Crush, the local vagrant, until snapshot by snapshot his story is told.
 
Set in various homes, streets, parks and a nearby residence for the demented elderly, The Homeless Heart-Throb is a journey into contemporary Wales lit up with the full gamut of human relationships: platonic, romantic and sexual.
