The Secret Life of Love Songs by Tim Lucas
Hardcover – PS Publishing – 2021 – 80 pages
IN THE THEATER OF YOUR MIND, The Lecturer takes the stage to remark on the history and variety of the Love Song, pausing now and again to perform examples of his own. Each song is then overturned and interpreted like a Tarot card, the eventual spread telling the story of a fateful meeting and the metaphysical journey that overtook his emptiness after completing an album some ten years in the making.
Originally written for a cancelled anthology of stories inspired by the work of Nick Cave, The Secret Life of Love Songsis the first new fiction by Tim Lucas (Throat Sprockets, The Book of Renfield) to appear in sixteen years.
