letters from home
“Brian* is caught up in Drama fever – something I have completely recovered from and he actually helps matters by talking about it all bla bla ..incestuous sex and parties. Greg’s depressed and seedy. Euan talks shit and fucks everyone. Mike and Jerry are both in love with Elise. Elise screws both of them and abuses Mike at party’s in dark corners and Mike gets depressed. Cate is in love with John and screams at him at party’s, “ How do you know you’re gay? If you are why don’t you fall in love with Brian?” The truth is Brian is in love with John but John’s not in love with Brian and now Cate’s decided she’s a lesbian anyway, so she slept with Sue and John slept with Gary (after Brian who’d slept with John told John he’d fancied Gary) – so they got heavy in front of Brian who came home and cried on my shoulder for hours. A couple of weekends ago we had Sue and Fiona here screaming about the house until 5am before they finally all crashed downstairs. Full stop.”
* Names have been changed to protect identities. After all "Mike" became a famous soapy star, Brian a playwright and Sue a very successful author and actor. I suspect Greg is still depressed, Euan wishes he still could fuck everyone and I haven't the slightest idea who half the others are.
