‘Angela Graham is a brilliant new voice. This is literature that deserves to last.‘ Kate Hamer ‘honest, searing, insightful and very, very good‘ Inez Lynn ‘The stories entice and intrigue… highly recommended‘ Graham Reid ‘In this powerful collection, Angela Graham shows herself master of the angle of vision: her tales capture the mercurial moment when a person’s world is changed forever’ Stevie Davies ‘An impressive kaleidoscope of landscape and language’ Angeline King ‘Angela Graham’s assured and compelling debut collection… These stories show us what the genre does best: the ‘snapshot’ of a moment which reveals a life or a culture in a moment of transition or realisation, what James Joyce called an ‘epiphany’.
