Product description


LONGLISTED for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award 2015
LONGLISTED for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2015

'A terrifically dark and frightening collection, Little Crackers jolts with electricity and malice. ...hits the bullseye on almost every shot.' --Mslexia

'These stories challenge the very idea that such a state as 'normal' exists. In Beda Higgins' fictional world, conventional life and attitudes are suspect. To be human is to be damaged, and to be damaged is to be human.' --James Robertson

'These twisted tales beat with a heart of stone; Higgins has managed to create little godless universes that sting like a paper cut. Bravo!' --Crack magazine

'Full of surprising twists and unexpected outcomes...taking the reader on a journey through other people's unique stories.' --Matthew Bradby, Queen's Nursing Institute

Praise for Beda Higgins:

'Will have you chuckling or wide-eyed in shock... mixes traditional fairytales with fantastic contemporary punches.' --Crack Magazine

About the Author

Beda Higgins is an award-winning author and poet whose short stories have garnered fantastic reviews. Her first collection, 'Chameleon', received a Read Regional Recommendation and was longlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize. Beda's three novels have all been highly commended - with shortlistings for the National Lit Idol Competition and Luke Bitmead Prize, and a longlisting for the Cinnamon and Mslexia Novel Prize.
