LoveSexTravelMusik: Stories for the EasyJet Generation

LoveSexTravelMusik by Rodge Glass

“Rodge Glass’ eagerly awaited new book LoveSexTravelMusik is potentially one of the most perceptive pieces of modern writing to date.”

-The List

‘Brilliant, razor sharp and thoroughly modern in its prose. I love this collection of stories.’

– Helen Walsh

Rodge Glass, author of LoveSexTravelMusikLong-listed for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award 

A lads’ weekend in Eastern Europe spirals out of control. A bleeding tourist is rescued by a stranger in downtown Toronto. A middle-aged woman holidaying in Tunisia considers the local options for love. An unemployed man shares his fantasies of a sex tour of Arizona with his long-suffering girlfriend. A woman is drawn into an impromptu but life-changing football game in the heart of the Amazon.

LoveSexTravelMusik is a themed, contemporary story collection like no other. With wit, wisdom, insight and pathos, it examines men and women of all ages who, through the advent of discount air travel, play out their lives and loves across the globe, and captures the isolation, dislocation and occasional epiphanies of those who find themselves a thousand miles from home, and those who long to be.

LoveSexTravelMusik was published on the 22nd April 2013 by Freight Books.

“In this download-era of frequent budget travel and budget reading, of fast-grab experience, Glass seems in synch with the restless zeitgeist.”

– The Scotsman
‘Never before has the impact of low cost international travel on modern lives been so thoughtfully considered and brilliantly captured… beautiful, profound, sometimes heartbreaking, this literary triumph shows the levelling impact of low cost air travel… Laugh, be moved and consider the question: are you part of the easyJet generation?’
– Traveller Magazine
