AN INTENSE, SEXY ROMP THROUGH THE LANDMINES OF LOVE
Have you ever waited by the phone for someone to call? Caught your lover flirting with someone else? Or gotten the 7-year itch and felt the need to scratch it with a grenade?
On the eve of his wedding anniversary, Charles makes a final attempt to save his marriage—by taking up arms and destroying it. New partners are recruited in this romantic arms race that spirals out of control.
Helicopters loom outside the house to battle international terror. Inside the house, the fires of war rage between lovers. Holes are smashed in walls. Precious keepsakes are burned. Glasses are shattered.
CAN LOVE SURVIVE IN A WORLD PERPETUALLY AT WAR?
Part of the Love-Gone-Wrong-at-the-End-of-the-World Trilogy, Last Love is a dark comedy about cycles of violence -- from couples arguing over the toilet seat to troops fighting in the Afghanistan War.
"The outrageous situations that evolve are not only laugh-out-loud funny, but also provide incredible insight into relationships."
--Centralian Advocate (Australia)
