Everyone needs this!,
This review is from: Sawn-Off Tales (Salt Modern Fiction) (Hardcover)
In this set of new ultra short stories David Gaffney offers a new take on everything from aching lovers, redundant factory workers, tragic bedsits, and ham-handed courtships. An abandoned husband sticks frozen snacks all over his walls to mourn his estranged wife; a company forces its staff take up smoking; a local council trains its bin men to dance and sing. His stories make you giggle and sob at the same time (which, I warn you can cause choking - coffee came out of my nose while reading one of these) Gaffney stories are pies. They stick like to your ribs like metal toffee, and will probably make you fat - fat and lovely to know. I hope he writes more and gives them to me.
