Going the Distance

An anthology of stories edited by


"Triumphant proof that the short story is alive and kicking in the UK."
Peter Ho Davies

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
