Crime, coffee and careless talk.
Shortlisted for the 2015 Shirley Jackson Novella award, Unusual Concentrations is a bleakly funny tale of loneliness, imagination and the curious horrors of coffee culture, written by award winning novelist and graphic-novelist Simon Spurrier.
Jay Berry is a pathetic man. He spends his days in the anodyne cafeterias of London, living vicariously through those around him, letting his pitiful attention skip like a pebble on a pond.
But an overheard conversation and a grisly event - death-by-latte - embroil him in a caffeinated conspiracy his dismal imagination can barely comprehend.
Following the success of his novels Contract and A Serpent Uncoiled, this 40,000-word blast of dark absurdist realism marks Spurrier's first foray into digital publishing, and is available in all major e-reader formats.
