Cover Contest 2019: Everything Could Be So Perfect
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'General'
What memories we share lie so deep in your mind
To tear out from your eyes I won’t speak of forbidden lies
I'll keep watching as you leave me further behind
A middle-aged author of elite fiction watches a film adaptation of his first book and is immediately enraptured by the young actor in the leading role. Captivated and, increasingly, consumed: he discovers more about the person, his life, finds old photographs, kisses them – and more. Eventually, his mania takes him to a meeting and a pathetically awful denouement.
Everything Could Be So Perfect is an engaging study of an obsession bordering on madness.
