(2006)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Following on from the spectacular critical success of Peter Hobbs's debut novel, here is a wonderful collection of comic, heartfelt, grotesque, other-worldly and fantastical stories. A divorced mother in Florida reflects on the life that is slipping away from her. A young zoologist sees the world from the business end of his zebras. There's the story of a group of car-washers based on a south London supermarket forecourt. And Pythagoras explains just what exactly was his problem with triangles. In this thoughtful, compassionate and wildly inventive debut collection Hobbs recalls work from writers as diverse as J G Ballard, David Foster Wallace and Toby Litt.
