In TOO BEAUTIFUL FOR YOU he applies the same principle to the emotional life - and particularly sexual feelings. The interweaving lives of a group of people living in a small area of South London sometimes become surreal, but are always charged with emotion, and Liddle describes them in a way that, however bizarre the turn of events, emotional reality burns off the page.

Told by his bosses he must make a choice, Liddle opted to quit the programme and keep his newspaper column.

Sex is mostly what holds together the bizarre collection of misfits and misanthropes that inhabit Rod Liddle’s Too Beautiful For You. Superficially a collection of short stories, the book really feels like one long novel filled with people at the very edges of their lives. It’s not long, mind you. It just feels long most of the time. There are a few sympathetic characters from time to time and it’s easy to get wrapped up in their unfortunate little lives. In the first story, The Window, where Marian just wants to go, go now, go home from the office but the useless bastard who’s meant to fix.

An ambitious fiction debut filled with lust, longing, and moral depravity.The tales in Too Beautiful for You, Rod Liddle’s dazzling debut, sweep readers into the lives of characters whose sexual frustrations and deviant desires lead them to the very edge of acceptable behavior—and sometimes way beyond.In a mischievous, macabre tale about a man who loses his arm in an accident on the way back from an assignation, Liddle shows just how far a husband will go to hide his infidelity from his wife. Another philandering husband, operating much closer to home, doesn’t let fleeting pangs of guilt curtail his hunger for the sexual treats proffered by his mother-in-law. Bizarre happenings are not confined to the sexually adventuresome: one woman notices that her skin is hardening into a sort of insect carapace after she uses a depilatory gel; a suicide bomber is forced to acknowledge his abysmal failure as a terrorist when he tries to blow up a Jewish art gallery with a package of trout; and a man planning to jump out a window finds some of his colleagues all too ready to assist him. Liddle presents his panoply of misfits and miscreants without passing judgment. The passions they harbor and the acts they commit may be shocking and scandalous, but Liddle shows that these hapless men and women are not so very different from the rest of us. Sharp-witted, sexy, and psychologically astute, Too Beautiful for You breaks through literary and social taboos with style and humor, reminiscent of the early work of Martin Amis.

This is a difficult book to evaluate. Two of the stories are excellent: "The Window" and "The long, long road to Uttoxeter," although the latter story is extremely grisly and dismal. All of these stories are dark, many with a sexual twist. A novella length story, "Radu," reflects the book as a whole in that it kind of works. Liddell uses some meaningless affectations. In the middle of a paragraph he will insert an irrelevant sentence or not capitalize a name he has been capitalizing. Why? I would read the book for the two excellent stories, maybe "Radu" and skip the rest.

Rod Liddle, Too Beautiful for You: Tales of Improper Behavior (Doubleday, 2003)

Twelve generally interrelated tales of everything from Keystone Kops-style slapstick to almost Kafkaesque magic realism. The majority focus on some sort of sexual misconduct or other (the major exception, oddly, being the book's first tale, which is nothing more than a shaggy dog joke that is, to be fair, exceptionally well set up). Liddle has good comic timing and knows how to pull an idea out to its logically absurd conclusion (the book's best story, "The Long, Long Road to Uttoxeter", is a perfect example of this, with a man trying frantically to come up with an excuse for an infidelitous jaunt when he becomes involved in a nasty rail accident and loses his right arm on the way home). There did seem to be a few times when an editor might have been able to snap stories into better shape, but what's here is certainly worth reading if you like your humor with a dash of the perverse and a jaundiced eye towards twentysomethings. *** ½

... because none of the characters in this book struck me as particularly attractive. Just sad and misguided. Not the worst book I've ever read; I managed to finish it. But it always left me feeling sad whenever I picked it up.

The best book I have read in months...Rod Liddle's book is a gem.
