Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dark, witty and . . . moving . . . Gale is interested in power and the lack of it and his stories pull the reader in unexpected ways, offering worlds that are far from certain and where love or its absence can never be predicted.” —The Sunday Telegraph
 
“The short story form suits Gale’s ability to zoom in on the smallest nuances of a relationship.” —The Times (London)
 
“The stories confirm Gale’s ability to exploit the short story genre’s capacity to deliver a caffeinated hit. . . . [They] showcase his capacity for combining a light touch and a macabre sense of humour with an understated strength of human feeling.” —Metro
 
“Gale’s writing is sharply evocative. . . . [He] writes with such humanity and warmth in his novels that it comes as a surprise that these short stories are told in a different, darker voice.” —Daily Mail
 
“A hugely enjoyable collection which proves that the short story is still very much alive . . . Gale has a distinctive sense of humour and it is not unusual for something sinister to be lurking beneath the apparently unruffled and genteel surface of his narrative.” —Daily Express
 
“It provides further evidence of Gale’s stylistic deftness, insight and wonderfully eclectic range of interests … Even as rural life and perspectives dominate, other stories consistently tease out fresh territory.” —The Independent
 
“Vivid, believable characters . . . Gale has a light touch with social commentary but the undertones are often menacing.” —The Times Literary Supplement
