Impotent Scottish HR employee David leaves his family and begins a relationship with an American woman named Alice. With David teetering on the brink of unemployment, Alice decides they need help, and a remedy that starts out with sexy bedtime stories ends up right in the thick of Glasgow's swinging scene. And there, in the 'Black Room' along with nine other couples, where you can feel everything but see nothing, each of them finally finds what they are looking for...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Glasgow writer Ewan Morrison takes on the mantle of responsibility of writing a serious book about sex and carries it off with great success. It's difficult to believe that Swung is his first novel. It boasts a narrative control and sureness of touch... that would induce envy in many more experienced novelists... Swung is a beautifully crafted, completely realised and often inspirational book. It announces Morrison as one of the most interesting and exciting voices to emerge in Scottish fiction in recent years" -- Irvine Welsh * Guardian *
"Genuinely groundbreaking... Morrison is one of the most gifted and accomplished writers to have emerged in recent years" -- Irvine Welsh
"The best book on sex since John Updike's Couples. Ewan Morrison's brave, dirty, utterly honest account of the psychological side of swinging is a complete delight" -- Matt Thorne
"Though sex is its language, this is a novel about ageing and settling and messing things up again, with heart enough to make it hurt" -- Hepzibah Anderson * Observer *
"Swung is a book of real ambition, a wide ranging exploration of human needs that starts from the most unexpected of websites" * Herald *
