'It was the curse of the modern age, options; who needed options, when everything was essentially meaningless?'So says one of the characters in Lara Williams's extraordinary debut story collection. Treats is a break-up album of tales covering relationships, the tyranny of choice and self navigation. This fresh, beguiling new voice paints a portrait of contemporary womanhood, balancing wry humour with a pervading sense of alienation.Williams's characters struggle with how to negotiate intimacy within relationships and isolation when single, the pitfalls and indignities of dating, dragged down by dissatisfaction. Meanwhile the dilemmas of contemporary adulthood play out, including abortion, depression, extra-marital affairs, infatuation, new baby anxiety, bereavement, hair loss, sexual ethics, cats and taxidermy.
