Short stories have a way of encapsulating the world around us and within us. While storytelling is a universal thing, it's the images in these sixteen stories that evoke a place and its people. Dead bats hanging on a wire, sport on the TV, figurines by a bed, teacups of yore and reusable coffee cups of now, the three of something new, the politics of a school playground, real and unreal memories, the joy of music, the weight of art, wildlife and more.
