In the blisteringly fierce ‘Mad Love’, a young woman honeymoons in Africa with her new husband. Unflappable, dully affable, immune to the horrors of the world lurking beyond the tour bus, he becomes ever more loathsome to her.
‘Mad Love’ is a short story taken from Maria Takolander’s powerful debut collection, The Double.
‘Maria Takolander’s stories are written in a bewitching minor key. Haunting and mysterious, this is a collection that you will want to savour, then read all over again.’
‘Extraordinary. I was entranced. Takolander’s stories have a remarkable concentration of vision; their images are haunting and powerful, and will remain with me for a long time.’
