The Angry Synapse
By Eddie Revel.
Mr Lil is a lab technician in a neuroscience lab. He doesn’t like working. He likes to be alone. But he has a girlfriend, something incompatible with his being alone. Mr and Mrs Lil go on holiday. They argue a lot on holiday. Mr Lil tries to understand why they argue. He tries to understand why he tells himself he’s a nice person but always ends up being a jerk.

“A meditation on what it’s like to be in any relationship, to do things and not really know why you do them. Revel seems to find something inherently human in his brutally honest writing”. Heather Feather.
