Summary

Experimenting with different styles and forms of storytelling, this debut collection is written with a compassionate eye for the fragile position of women, the dispossessed and the poor. The forty stories vary in length and type quite widely, from a one-line story to a short novella. ‘Flying ants’ is about the emotional neglect and abuse of Mrs Prinn, a woman displaced by her daughter; ‘Belinda’ a slice of life in a small South African town. ‘Knit one’, about a retired couple, solidifies the tone and major theme of the collection: the decay and unseen emotional damage caused by unequal and patriarchal relationships.
