Arthur Wooten's Shorts
Stroke Of Luck: a short story & The "Dear Henry" Letters
"Wooten's writing is honest, funny, moving...these may be 'shorts' but they made a big impression on me." - Clayton Littlewood, author of Goodbye To Soho and DWB: Tales Of Soho
A Stroke Of Luck: a short story
Chip Lowell is a sexy, spicy and self-confident celebrity chef who is just about to debut his first television cooking show. But in the blink of an eye, a life-altering incident forces him to change his menu and reevaluate himself and the people in his life.
The "Dear Henry" Letters
For two years Arthur was the humorist for the London magazine, reFRESH. In each issue of this gay publication he wrote a letter to his exasperating and fictional lover, Henry, explaining the never-ending reasons why they must end their relationship. But as we all know, sometimes breaking up is really hard to do.
"Wooten's knack at mastering comedy through extraordinary situations is unsurpassed. If you loved his 'fruit series' you're going to relish what's inside his 'shorts'!" - Gregory G. Allen, author of Well With My Soul
"Writing comedy is not easy and writing intelligent comedy is even more difficult. It is a quality that I've always believed is inherent and not learned and Mr. Wooten possesses this innate talent in spades. Characterised by an excellent comedic sense, his writing is highly imaginative with a sharp sophistication." - Indogene, The Indie Reviewer
