Book Description

29 Mar 2008
'A snatched lunch-hour or daily commute doesn't have to be spent wasted, bored or uninspired'. A continuation of the successful "Short Story Reinvented" series, "Eight Hours" is a dynamic cross between the novel and the short-story, showcasing new writing from eight talented authors. Each story follows a different main character for a single hour and, from a fifteen year old girl who is so tormented she can't sleep, to a man who experiences counselling for the first time, the collection reveals an intriguing mix of powerful snapshots. Modern-day fiction at its immediate and vigorous best.

5.0 out of 5 stars rediscovering the short story 26 Jan 2009
By Ananda
it has been years since i have picked up a book of short stories - and i can't believe it has taken me so long. Each story takes you through an hour and each one grabs your imagination... making an hour on the train disappear. And they got better and better - the last one - 1am by Daniel Gothard - had me in tears.

I will be keeping my eyes out for more by these new authors. and picking up more short stories in future too.
