Twenty-five stories about exile and belonging. This first collection by award winning writer Jo Cannon explores what it means to be an outsider. Sometimes surreal, always perceptive, these stories celebrate the unexpected interactions that alter lives.
'To read Jo Cannon is to enter the world of the displaced, the dispossessed, and to emerge with a new understanding. She writes with integrity and compassion, and her stories resonate long after the final words have been read.' Zoe King
'Jo Cannon's writing is engaging and thought provoking, with a quirky gentleness in the prose. Her stories gradually reveal strong universal themes that continue to 'sing' long after the reader has put down the work.' Vanessa Gebbie
