Going the Distance

An anthology of stories edited by

With some of the best writing in the short story form the UK has to offer, this anthology is a real feast: Gemma Blackshaw's spot-on portrait of an Essex girl on the verge of losing her virginity; Alan Beard cuts to the quick with a painfully honest study of growing regret and acceptance after a marriage break-up through infidelity; Joel Lane's beautiful, poetical allegory about a man's relationship with alcohol; to Godfrey Featherstone's heartbreaking tale of an illiterate Birmingham couple, told in the form of a letter from a prison cell. Going the Distance is always powerful, original, perfectly understated, each voice strong and enticing.""-Laura Hird
