Customer Review

on 8 November 2016
These are beautifully written, well-crafted stories, enigmatic, and diverse. There is none of the ‘sameness’ found in collections by less accomplished writers. There is humour here, and tragedy, desire and loneliness: people in all their hapless, hopeful humanity. Compare the imaginative brilliance of Experiment in Time with the delicious humour in Memo Home and the heartfelt poignancy of Goodbye old Friend. Three other stories also stand out for me: the lead story, After Doris Day, the titular story, The corner of Moon Street and the final story, Had We Not Loved so Kindly. You will have your own favourites!

Tom Saunders is one of the UK’s very best short-story writers and The Corner of Moon Street is his third collection. Like the stories in previous collections – Brother What Strange Place is This and Roof Whirl Away - every one of these new tales is a gem.

The quality of the writing will keep any reader turning pages but the characters, so quirky and real and recognisable, will linger in the mind long after the book has been closed.

A highly recommended collection.
