Product description

Review

The collection illustrates just how vibrant and varied the UK short story writing scene is ... each is well crafted and there's much breadth in terms of style, tone and theme - running from love to war and covering everything in between.--Sarah-Clare Conlon "Bookmunch "

It's so good that it's hard to believe that there was no equivalent during the 17 years since Giles Gordon and David Hughes's Best English Short Stories ceased publication in 1994. The first selection makes a very good beginning Highly Recommended.--Kate Saunders "The Times "

Slip this lightweight but nourishing anthology into your holiday bag. Editor Royle has selected 20 published stories from British writers. His own (excellent) taste means that little explosions of weirdness or transcendence often erupt amid much well-observed everyday life.--Boyd Tonkin "The Independent "
