Everything should stay as it is or you will lose everything and that's how it is for everyone. Today was a day for getting along liver-healing a cocktail party and a faster wireless connection that tolerates renovated turn-of-the-century walls and allows Candy Cane (or Coconut?) to become a part of your afternoon en suite bathroom caucus. Life is not good but it feels good on occasion baby is what you might type. — from The Bourgeois Empire Paranoia pills and torrent after torrent of glorious porn. A marriage devoid of both sex and emotion. A broken hand a perpetually surreal home reno a dying dog. For Jules a successful professional with a wife and kids all of this would be manageable — if it wasn't for Charlie. Because fifteen-year-old girls dear reader are something different entirely. Jules is obsessed with a teenager — he's falling head over heels and attempting to arrest the march of time. He's a man dammit — a man's man a guy's guy — and that's all that matters. The Bourgeois Empire Evie Christie's first novel is a Nabokovian fever dream an encyclopedic guide to mortal sin and a thoroughly contemporary reimagining of Billy Wilder's classic film The Lost Weekend . And yes of course it's a love story too.
