“I didn’t stop giving hand jobs because I wasn’t good at it. I stopped giving hand jobs because I was the best at it.”
When a book starts with a line like that you know you absolutely want to read through the
odd 60 something pages of story, and you want to do it fast. This is a short story by Gillian Flynn, my absolute favourite writer in the thriller-horror genre. It was previously published in an anthology edited by George RR Martin in which it was titled What Do You Do?
In true Gillian Flynn style, this book is about a nameless girl, from a troubled background, coping with her life with confidence, dry humour and grit. She believes she can read people and even “smell” their auras.
