Among those I elected to highlight as a particular favourite is 'The End-of-the-Pier Show', by Derek Haycock, which is compelling and uses beautifully crafted dialogue to communicate the complex dynamics of a long-term relationship, suffering under the holiday weather of a British seaside town. 'Sam Something' by Kate Blackadder (great name) and Gill McKinlay’s 'Celebrity Kennels' incorporate humour as a way of dealing with the repercussions of gossip and a means of relaying our apparent obsession with television, respectively. Finally, 'Something to Move You', by Alice Parrant, covers the difficult subject of dementia, which, despite the solemnity, is filled with warmth and poignancy.
If you’re looking for an easy read, while relaxing around the pool on holiday or simply taking a break for coffee, this could serve as the perfect accompaniment.
This is a good selection of stories of various lengths, to suit those different periods of time when you need amusing. Some of the tales brought tears to my eyes, some were soooo predictable, some were unusual, or had a slight twist. All in all, a worthwhile little collection of stories to have stashed away for when you need some light reading:)
