"Beautifully crafted and memorable."
A mother who uses charity as a weapon. An obsession that takes a man closer to the mysteries of the cosmos than he counted on. An invisible chef and his deadly mashed potato. A man who can't stop crying. A murderer who helps his victims escape death. The weekend break that becomes a journey to edges of sanity... And more.
Eleven furiously original and off-centre stories that blend dark magical realism with gripping domestic drama to create tales that range from the hauntingly sinister to the downright bizarre.
"These stories were a really pleasant surprise. Highly recommended."
Influenced by JG Ballard, Iain Banks, Will Self, Margaret Atwood and Kurt Vonnegut to name a few, Sef Hughes writes stories that are dark, heartbreaking, funny, twisted, bleak and hopeful in unequal measure, that take his readers to the curious extremities of human relationships.
"...provocative stories concocted and served by a writer who has a unique mind and—for my money—a brilliant one."
