Hieroglyphics

(2001)
And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

 

"Anne Donovan is outstanding ... quite marvellous. I was very, very impressed."
Melvyn Bragg


A beautiful collection - charming, witty and touching - these stories give voice to a variety of different characters: from the little girl who wants to look 'subtle' for her father's funeral, a child who has an email pen pal on Jupiter and an old lady who becomes a star through 'zimmerobics'.

Often writing in a vibrant Glaswegian vernacular, Donovan deftly gives her characters authenticity with a searing power, aided and abetted by tender subtlety.
