The BBC National Short Story Award 2020

A collection of stories by

A young woman’s birthday party is disturbed by the vision of a homeless man sleeping under an arrangement of mocking fruit...

A late-night text conversation goes awry when a forwarded link to a live feed of gathering walruses doesn’t have its intended effect...

A woman hopes a pending announcement to her in-laws will finally give her husband the attention he craves...

The stories shortlisted for the 2020 BBC National Short Story Award with Cambridge University demonstrate how a single moment might become momentous; how a small encounter or exchange can irreversibly change the way others see you, or the way you see yourself. From the struggles of two women trapped by joblessness and addiction to the hopes of two teenage brothers embarking on a new life without the protection of their parents, these stories show us what happens when we fail to relate to each other as well as the refuge that belonging affords.
