Iris leaves her deathbed to dance across the ice on Tyne Dock. A septuagenarian film star reflects on myth, dance music and mutual masturbation at the FIN DE SICLE. A boy starts working out in a gym to prepare to give birth. I inherit(s) a book full of Japanese flowers, each of which embodies a particular desire. PLAYING OUT is a fascinating and beautifully written collection of stories about playing out desires, about travelling far afield in the mind or abroad, or just popping out round the corner, looking for whatever it is you fancy.
