Publisher's Summary

Embracing science fiction, suspense, and the supernatural, this genre-bending collection explores the contradictions and complexities of the human condition.

  • A man in a dead-end job finds his life changes by an encounter with his past
  • A stranger charms his way into the life of an attractive woman - but his motive is shrouded in mystery
  • In a bombed-out future, a young man nurses a very private obsession
  • A man growing old finds himself haunted by ghosts - but are they only inside his imagination?

Sometimes exuberantly funny, sometimes bittersweet, Sugar will delight both new listeners and those familiar with Matthew Waterhouse's novels.

    "Best thing I've read in 30 years"
    Where does Sugar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very top


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing I liked most was the diversity of the four stories in this collection


    What does Matthew Waterhouse bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The author is a good actor and displays depth and nuance in multiple characters. The various characterizations and accents display an exciting talent.


    Any additional comments?

    The thing that surprised me most about this collection is that I've found myself thinking about these hilarious and sad stories for weeks afterward, haunted by them and compelled alternatively to reread passages and relisten to the audios time and again. The tales are entertaining on the surface level as well as fine literature for the thinking person. They're even better the second and third time around. The unabridged Audible version of this collection is most enjoyable, with Waterhouse giving pitch perfect voice to the multiple characters. It is highly recommended. I have not read such a fun, entertaining and fulfilling work in 30 years.
