Tapping into the voyeuristic human compulsion that attracts us to the dirty little secrets of other peoples' lives, Oscar Martens' stories peel back layers of contemporary society, revealing a sordid underside.

In the title story, the girl with the full figure reveals a poorly kept secret to a family more at ease with denial than healing. Elsewhere in the collection, unexplainable compulsions lead to suspect sexual liasons. Planes crash. Corporate secrets are stolen. A young girl is murdered. It's all here, all told by a formidable talent unafraid to play with narrative form, revealing nuances hidden in the periphery of the text. Oscar Martens' stories are gritty and ceaselessly gripping.
