MEDIA AND REVIEWS

"Fresh writing that goes to unexpected places. Raw, moving and frequently surprising."

David Slack / Literary Commentator

"Anthologies allow us to dip in and out at our leisure, to skip one and maybe come back to it later and to re-read that particular one, because it won't take long and it was just so good! This anthology is rich with variety, definite re-reads and lines to savour.  I'll keep it on my bedside table."

Anne Kayes / Author of Tui Street Tales
