‘Our interest’s on the dangerous edge of things... the honest thief, the tender murderer, the superstitious atheist.’
The characters that inhabit Freya McClements’ debut collection of short stories are each trying to make their way in a world in which love or lust has pushed them to the very edge of society – and sometimes beyond. From the mother engaged in an illicit affair to the husband who harbours a dark secret or the exotic new boyfriend who appears too good to be true, each must adjust to their new reality – or face the consequences.
‘A new and vibrant voice. These stories will stay with you, haunt you, comfort you... leave you wanting more.’
