by Cathy Sweeney
There once was ...
a woman who loved her husband's cock so much that she began taking it to work in her lunchbox.
a man who made films without a camera, which transfixed his estranged daughter.
a couple who administered electric shocks to each other, to be reminded of what love is.
a world where you wake up one day and notice that, one by one, people are turning blue.
Startling, wry, beguiling and emotionally charged - the stories in Modern Times might be reminiscent of Lydia Davis, Angela Carter and Daisy Johnson, but they are also unlike anything you've read before.
