Book Description

18 Nov 2011
Stanley Donwood says of a selection of stories contained in Household Worms that were inspired by drinking red wine alone at night: 'These were written to avoid staring for too long at a night-filled window that only reflected my own sorry-for-itself face. Perhaps I should try writing with white wine too. A lighter tone may emerge. Champagne would probably get me writing jokes for crackers. Never mind, never mind.' Donwood is best known as an artist, but this collection confirms his prowess as an equally talented writer of prose.

Product Description

About the Author

Stanley Donwood was described by GQ magazine as "the Terry Gilliam of Radiohead", which he hated, saying "a soundbite is a statement designed to preclude intelligent thought". The powerful visual identity he's created for the band is considered so in tune with Thom Yorke's music that the debate still rages as to whether he and Yorke are one and the same, despite the pair accepting their 2001 Grammy Award for best packaging (a limited edition of Amnesiac) together. They met at Exeter University.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant collection of flash fiction. 24 Sep 2012
Donwood is the artist for Radiohead and his book looks like an album cover. This collection of stories is his second and he says of it "'These were written to avoid staring for too long at a night-filled window that only reflected my own sorry-for-itself face". Each story is short, some less than half a page but each is well crafted and together form a coherent collection. I devoured this in one sitting, all 41 stories and Mr. Donwood is propelled immediately to being one of my favourite short story writers. Donwood promotes the book on his website as "Ideal as a Zmas stocking filler for the slightly deranged." These are darkly grey stories and could be viewed as depressing if it wasn't for the self-depreciating black humour throughout. Donwood's oeuvre is despair, where litter, decay and long dead insects on windowsills are the background upon which the characters fail to fit in with the world.
