About this product
- DescriptionPrepare to enter a world where thing is ever quite what it seems, where elephants squat in living rooms, plastic ducks fall from the skies and even the rabbits can't be trusted. The fifty-eight stories in Jonathan Pinck's Scott Prize-winning collection Dot Dash show a vivid yet disciplined imagination at work. These stories, many of which have individually won prizes, are populated by a rich variety of characters, including a tightrope-walking couple with marital issues, a graffiti artist with an agenda and an interviewee who's about to find out some awkward truths about himself. Very few of them turn out to be completely incent, and ne of them remains unaffected by the experience. Jonathan Pinck's unashamedly entertaining fictions explore what happens when the macabre and the absurd crash headlong into everyday life. As writer Tania Hershman says, he 'isn't content to just pull back the curtain, but sets fire to it and chuckles as it blazes'. With this incendiary first collection, he invites readers to pull up a chair and watch the flames rise.
