The Psychological Benefits Of Exercise

In Athens airport a man waits for his marriage to reach its end, while a struggling writer seeks solitude and self-discovery in an idyllic island retreat.

In Brazil, a young girl plots revenge on the man who has betrayed her, while in the title story, a woman finds that love can exist in the most unlikely of places.

In London, a girl waits apprehensively for her elusive father to arrive for Christmas dinner, and a woman comes to doubt her commitment to the man she is to marry.

Across journeys both short and long, the characters in these fourteen stories learn how to live with loss and loneliness through humour, pain and reflection.

The Psychological Benefits Of Exercise is James Armour Young’s first collection of stories.
