Twenty-something girl's comic adventures: festival, work, Paris. She wants to write and her dark short stories are included.
Set in the early nineties this is the story of Pauline, an aspiring writer whose short dark stories are included in the book.
A fun-loving girl who in her university summer holidays goes to work for a high-street store where she gets to earn some money for the holidays.
She enjoys a break with her close friends at a rock festival. Her time at the festival is a mixture of moments of contemplation and comic episodes.
Following this, she takes a trip to Paris where she falls in love with the city. The trip brings moments of chaos, fun and comedy.
Throughout the book there are sixteen short stories written by Pauline. She puts pen to paper when an idea comes to mind, and to evoke the feeling and tension that she is trying to get her readers to experience, she has suggested pieces of music for them to listen to whilst or before reading them. These short stories vary greatly from the core book as they are dark, often violent, and always end with a death.
