Review

"Exceptional...Sharp, witty and completely compelling" (Daily Mail)

"I can think of few writers who can make the ordinary collide with the extraordinary to such beguiling effect...left me so fizzing with admiration" (Observer)

"An exceptionally funny, quirky and bold writer" (Independent on Sunday)

"Moving and funny, and crammed with incidental wisdom" (Sunday Times)

"Inventive and moving, these are truly tales for the new millennium" (Good Book Guide)

Synopsis

What is the real world? Does it exist, or is it merely a means of keeping another reality at bay? "Not the End of the World" is Kate Atkinson's first collection of short stories. Playful and profound, they explore the world we think we know whilst offering a vision of another world which lurks just beneath the surface of our consciousness, a world where the myths we have banished from our lives are startlingly present and where imagination has the power to transform reality. From Charlene and Trudi, obsessively making lists while bombs explode softly in the streets outside, to gormless Eddie, maniacal cataloguer of fish, and Meredith Zane who may just have discovered the secret to eternal life, each of these stories shows that when the worlds of material existence and imagination collide, anything is possible.
