Bruno is struggling to escape the loveless labyrinth in which his childhood has imprisoned him. Short and stout, his only loves are his ever-expanding library and collection of jazz records. When a statuesque and enigmatic woman strides into Bruno’s life he finds himself floundering to reconcile his passion with the way her height makes him feel all the more laughable.

In a series of notebooks Bruno takes us from his Liverpool childhood to the bars and brothels of 1970s Soho, Norfolk’s salt marshes and finally Bohemian Biarritz. Funny and tragic, Minotaur in Love is the story of the mazes people build to hide their secret selves from the world.

Includes illustrations by artist Harriet Dell.
