Save as Many as You Ruin

Through life we have many experiences and we come to gather a great deal of memories. Whether they are good or bad are not something we can predict. Something that is certain though is that some of these memories will follow us to the end of our days. We can perhaps choose to forget some of these memories, but if we take them into our hearts and tries to make something good of them, then we can, perhaps, be a lot stronger and we will learn from the memories not to make the same mistakes again. This is what "Save as Many as You Ruin" written by Simon Van Booy in 2007, is about.

The short story takes place in Manhattan on a cold and snowy day. Here we are presented to the main character that is called Gerard. He has experienced a great deal of things throughout his life, and he has chosen to keep these memories with him to the rest of his days. Unfortunately, Gerard doesn't seem to be in contact with his emotions because he has only loved one single woman but despite that, he has slept with a lot of women. Perhaps because he is sleeping with so many women and thereby is promiscuous, he has trouble settling down. It could also have something to do with a very low self-esteem, "Gerard vaguely remembers the feeling of being in love with Laurel and the desire to have sex with Issy." (p. 5, l. 123-124).
Perhaps he loves Laurel with all his heart, but he cannot remain faithful in any way because all of his lusts will not keep still, it takes over, and it will eventually start to control him. Perhaps it will even ruin his life.
