Paint a Vulgar Picture Summary


Paint a Vulgar Picture: Fiction Inspired by the Smiths by Peter Wild

A charming man betrays friends in the name of celebrity. Love blooms by the cemetery gates. A sour rain falls on the new young Queen divine. Shoplifters of the world unite in order to tug a reluctant aardvark out of a hole. A sweet and tender hooligan swings a three-bar fire like it was a demolition ball. The middle classes rush and push to rid the world of chavs. The death of a Miami disco dancer inspires a new TV show. A naked birthday rendition of 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now' is seen across the globe. Cranked up trannies tout their trade as long as there is light. This is what happens when you PAINT A VULGAR PICTURE. Contributors include: Mike Gayle, Kate Pullinger, Catherine O'Flynn, Helen Walsh, Mil Millington, Alison MacLeod, Matt Beaumont, Scarlett Thomas and Jeff Noon.

Paint a Vulgar Picture Reviews


Praise for Perverted by Language Excellent * Independent on Sunday *
Innovative and imaginative * Time Out *
A triumph * Word Magazine *
A fine prose collection -- David Pollock * The List *
a good cross-section of contemporary British fiction and a testament to the lasting literary appeal of the group -- Jeremy Pritchard * City Life *
[T]here is much to enjoy here... a worthy collection. -- Phil Mongredien * Q *
Expect charming men and love at the cemetery gates. -- Ian Lowey * Nude Magazine *
Catherine O'Flynn...manages to turn what might just be another story of the bullied boy at school into something quite transfixing... As story after story turned out to be a hit, I started to get a strange feeling of generational pride: those years of hours spent in bedrooms and bedsits, listening, thinking and scribbling didn't go to waste; I always knew the Smiths' fans would always turn out to be the best writers. -- Toby Litt * The Times *
