Young Adam 

Young Adam 

Alexander Trocchi

What Douglas Stuart Says: This is quite a dark book. A drifter is hired to work on a barge and ends up seducing his boss’s wife. When he finds the body of a young woman floating in the canal, he knows more about her fate than he admits. This is a claustrophobic study of how men and women can use each other, a frank look at casual sex regardless of finer feelings. It was also a great film with Tilda Swinton and Ewan McGregor.
