Product Description

Review

A great story is nothing if not a score for the human voice, a spell to seduce the ear, brain and heart. The stories in Overheard cast a powerful spell. They take us into worlds that are as intimate as they are universal; as timeless as they are timely. Whether spoken, shouted, sung or murmured, here are stories that compel us to sit up and listen. (Alison MacLeod)

A book club read as well.
Not the same book club I might add. Some of the stories I found quite weird and awkward to read.
It got a thumbs down from all of us which is unusual for us.
Sorry not one I can recommend.

A book group read. Not sure that many of the stories were gripping or would have been better if read out loud.
