About “Predator”

September 18, 2009

Looking down

I saw her in St Anton. She had an orange ski suit and a tight body and I followed her down a run that I’d never have attempted if I had been in my right mind.

She didn’t look quite as good from the front and anyway she was more interested in my mad Australian friend Tim’s alleged half-brother, whose looks later got him a job as a DJ in Beirut.

Still, this story is in her honour.

The myth behind the story goes back as far as Homer’s Odyssey and probably further, so it’s at least 2,700 years old. Dante uses it too, but as far as I know I’m the first person to look at it as a love story.

Kind of.


Read the story when it appears on this blog next Monday. The book doesn’t come out until 19 November, but you can pre-order it now or request a review copy.
