Rhys Davies Short Story Competition Finalist

               Academi / Rhys Davies Short-story Competition, 2010.
FINALIST “Life-Task”.  Anthologised in Getting Up, Leaf Books.
“Life-Task by Angela Graham is one of those quiet, nuanced narratives that refract light into the depths of human tragedy. The story – oblique, harrowing, beautiful – bears witness to the personal cost of war…Graham haunts the memories of her readers with the paradoxical climax of her tale. In her hands the short story is a brief epic of suspenseful waiting and reversal, told in the minor key.”
Stevie Davies and Niall Griffiths – Judges.
