Martin describes his stories as

Incurable Romantic Seeks Dirty Filthy Whore

Thirty-ish pseudo-flâneur seeks sex through repeated visits to the Renoir cinema;

Girl with Palmettes

Thirty-ish pseudo-flâneur fails to have an affair with a willing, thirty-ish, artsy girl, through middle-class guilt and repeated inappropriate gallery visits.
