(2020)
A collection of stories by

 
 
‘By turns stomach-churning, tantalising and opulent – these stories confirm Vaught’s baroque talents..’

– Heidi James, author of The Sound Mirror.

In this dark and toothsome collection, Anna Vaught enters a strange world of apocryphal feasts and disturbing banquets. Famished explores the perils of selfish sensuality and trifle while child rearing, phantom sweetshop owners, the revolting use of sherbet in occult rituals, homicide by seaside rock, and the perversion of Thai Tapas. Once, that is, you’ve been bled dry from fluted cups by pretty incorporeals and learned about consuming pride in the hungriest of stately homes.

Famished: seventeen stories to whet your appetite and ruin your dinner.
