A Small Life by Suki

Struggling poet Suki has taken up life-modelling to make ends meet... 

In a run-down northern English town Suki fights a daily battle with self-doubt over her pursuit of a vocation that has brought neither recognition nor fortune. Single once again, wistfully childless, haunted by the spectre of a destitute old age, Suki starts a lonely night-time blog about art, life, love, loss, and getting old alone. This soon engages a loyal community of empathetic fellow-creatives – witnesses to her dogged pursuit of publication as well as her perennial quests for love and for the meaning of life . . . Among the good days and bad days we share her desperate optimism: her agent makes promises; her job offers new relationships . . . But can anyone, or anything, prevent anorexic, slightly suicidal Suki from hurtling towards her next crisis?

Note: A Small Life contains some graphic sexual content and harsh language.

By Chris Poirier, editor

Apr 11, 2015: A neat little literary confection. As much blogfic as novel, the voice is vivid and engaging. Be sure to check out the links below the next page links—there’s detail throughout.

No title

By Taulsn, author of Reaper

Apr 12, 2015: It feels more like reading someones diary than anything else, and is vastly different than most other things here. However it’s a very quick read, and interesting. So give it is shot. I should not that every page has an illustrated nude, while artistic and tasteful this is not one to check in the office.
