Following the darkly thrilling début novel Book & I by E-L Cartwright, there comes this absorbing collection of short stories. I dream of cold blue walls, two portraits of people looking down in yellow ochre frames, two chairs unoccupied, two bottles on the table, two everything but me, wrapped up in linen on the single bed like someone in a shroud. But why is there an angel at my head? - Vincent, "Inside the Yellow House" Inside the Yellow House & Other Stories continues to explore previous themes of obsession and perception through the lives of each character. The stories are threaded with beads of colour that run throughout - from the young artist who finds himself inexplicably trapped inside Vincent van Gogh's house in Arles and terrorised by that famous painter's favourite colour yellow to the neglected wife who decides to wear provocative red to divert her husband's wandering eye from his mistress. These varying strands culminate in the last two stories, where colour as metaphor for life is symbolised as the balance between the darkness of endings in "From the Depths" and the light of new beginnings in "Chasing Rainbows".
