Summary
Valerie lives on her own and has, shall we say, a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks with them about what went wrong. What follows is a series of peculiar and funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie. Apart from Stanley. Stanley was special. Could he be the one to save her? The Three Rooms In Valerie's Head explores relationships, memory, loneliness and obsession in a darkly humourous way and is the first collaboration between ultra-short fiction writer David Gaffney and comic artist Dan Berry.--Cover [page 4]
