From a chilling 'Rabbit' to brutal doppelgängers, Toast promises twists, turns, and a novel taste; a window to 'the malaise of the modern psyche'. This compilation delivers just that as the lines begin to blur, rational and insane behaviour morphing into one, and rendered intangible.
After swallowing the last bite we are left to question whether we are all, in fact, a little insane in a discernibly irrational world.
And what a feast it is. From chilling horror stories- particularly Rabbit by James Troughton, to bittersweet tales of love and separation like Pianoforte by Lucy Kaufman. They are brief, insightful moments into human life as we know it, or don't know it. An altogether marvellous group of witty short stories stitched together and eloquently edited by Belinda Hunt and RHUL's own Jemila Abulhawa.
You should not open this anthology expecting great works of literature. But what I love about this anthology is what Mardibooks has attempted to do here. What other publications appear to be losing sight of. This book not only brings a variety of great short stories to the fore, but a talented group of writers, from happily married fifty-two year olds to undergraduates seeking their place in the world. Writers are as unique as the stories they've created. But roughly, people being people and doing what they love in the process.
And, you know, maybe this anthology has helped me find my calling. Maybe I will go away and write a short story about how I misjudged a selection of short stories, followed by the climatic moment when I realise I'm a colossal tit. Then other people will go away and do the same. Years in the future there will be volumes upon volumes of short stories dedicated to misjudging short stories. Whole genres will be borne out of snobby English students turning their noses up at books written after the 19th Century.Read more ›
