Editorial Reviews

Review

"I would not change a single word" - Hilary Johnson Authors' Advisory Service on the short story A Modern Life. " 'No Returns' reads more like a prose poem, full of exquisite turns of phrase.This is a desperate woman's life in miniature, full of sexually poignant poetry and glimpses of everyday strangeness. A worthy winner." Ray Robinson, author of Forgetting Zoe and Electricity on the short story No Returns. "ReadWave are enormously pleased to publish Jane Turley's chilling but poignant story, The Princess and the Thief, and we're even more delighted that we can bring this story to readers across the world through our Worldreader program." Rob Tucker, CEO Readwave --This text refers to the paperback edition.
