Transactions of Desire (Volume 1)

Sarah Perks (Editor), Omar Kholeif (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Over recent years, this Bestseller has been especially popular at the Offprint Art Book Fair at TATE Modern, London. A collection of short stories exploring the fine line between love, loss and desire.

Heartbreak. This is the preserve of many a fairy tale gone wrong. Here, the disenchantment of a post-apocalyptic future is explored through stories of lust and yearning, twisted sexuality and repressed desire. Outsiders and lost youth collide in a funfair of their own making. These tales of unrequited love take place in zoos and churches, in museums and galleries, and in the deepest darkest crevices of each writer’s imagination.

This stand-alone title is published alongside the inaugural exhibition opening at HOME, Manchester (23 May – 26 July 2015).
