I have been familiar with Jo Derrick's writing for some time, and have read many of the stories in this collection before, in anthologies and on-line. Every one was worth a second reading, and there were a number of gems amongst the new stories I discovered.
Twisted Sheets is a bold exploration of love, loss and longing; glimpses of a myriad of different human relationships through the eyes of believable characters that resonate.
Jo's stories have an unflinching honesty, and she is not afraid to reveal the underbelly of life. As a result, Twisted Sheets is a photograph album filled with snapshots of a world that is sometimes unsettling, but that lingers in the mind long after you've finished reading.
