Editorial Reviews


‘Taylor relates these 16 tales of human fallibility with the dispassionate eye of someone who’s not only seen it all but can also write about it frighteningly well … [Her] prolific output has sharpened her talents, and her insight into human beings, to a fine point’ Alastair Mabbott, Scottish Herald

‘Readers will be mesmerized by the haunting, poetic writing ... [and] savor this exceptional collection of tales...Pensive and luminous’ Kirkus Reviews

‘A dark, enigmatic collection . . . What is not revealed in these tales is as dramatic as what is, with Taylor hinting at different and tantalizing narrative possibilities.’ Publishers’ Weekly Select

‘The way in which she presents intricate slices of the everyday is reminiscent of the fabulous Alice Munro ... one cannot help but think that she could deftly turn her hand to writing anything which she pleased … Russell Taylor's writing is stunning, ... often startling... a marvellous collection’ Kirsty Hewitt, Book Hugger

‘Belated examines ... the secret lives of the solitary and the menace that lurks in everyday exchanges, brilliantly capturing unnerving cruelties, compromises and contradictions in daily life’ Bookanista
