The first ever collection of stories from the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of Swing Time and White Teeth'
Zadie Smith is the best writer of our generation' Gary Shteyngart'
'Smith is virtuosic, as ever, on family and friendship, and her ability to write about large-scale social injustice without losing her neutral novelist's gaze is breathtaking' Times Literary Supplement on Swing Time
In the summer of 1959, an Antiguan immigrant in north west London lives the last day of his life, unknowingly caught in someone else's story of hate and division, resistance and revolt. A mother looks back on her early forays into matters of the human heart - and other parts of the human body - considering the ways in which desire is always an act of negotiation, destruction, and self-invention.
Paperback May 2020
Local writer and academic Sophia Hillan has worked with Arlen House Publishing to produce this stunning collection of her short stories. Compelling, with a delicate touch and a wry insight, this delightful book is very satisfying.
Sophia has also published two novels The Friday Tree and The Way We Danced, as well as a factual exploration of Jane Austen’s family connections in Donegal ‘ May, Lou and Cass : Jane Austen’s nieces in Ireland’.
