Product description

Review

In recent years every magazine worth its salt has featured a David Rose short story. Although bewilderingly various and multiphonic, they were always unmistakably him. --(Bill Broady, author of Swimmer)

The characters he invents have such compelling, authentic voices... each exquisitely precise tale leaves you with the feeling you have read an entire novel. --Daily Mail

--Daily Mail

Vault's a wonderful book that demands rereading on completion, written with such control that you'd be forgiven for thinking its author had a dozen novels just like it stuffed in a drawer somewhere, just waiting for someone to hunt them down. I was lucky enough to discover Vault when it came out, back in April, and I felt then like I'd just located a big, gleaming white X on the barren sands of mainstream publishing where courage, bravery and risk are frowned on, even derided. (Gavin James Bower Fiction Uncovered) --Fiction Uncovered

This is the way all novels should be written. Vault is the sort of book that sucks you up and spits you out, grabbing your attention from the first line and ending with a sharp bang. (Philistine Friendly)

'David Rose is one of the more hidden treasures of the British short story. [This] collects 25 years of his work, euphorically paranoid, slyly narrated, often hilarious, always quietly undermining both the narrating voice and any comfortably receptive position the reader might take up... the best of Rose is fragile, retrospective, centred on the characters' recognition that something in life, be it a general condition or an absolutely specific moment, has evaded them.' --(The Guardian)
