About this product
- DescriptionDeft and lyrical, fearless and human, Michel Faber's new collection is his first in seven years and will seal his reputation as one of Britain's most arresting and important authors.Rewned for his pitch-perfect prose and brilliant characterisation, Faber is also celebrated for his mastery of wildly different styles. Within these seventeen stories he levels his gaze at humanity in all its despair, joy and mundanity. From the achingly sad lost lives of 'The Safehouse' through moments of exquisitely distilled happiness in 'Vanilla-Bright Like Eminem' to the biblical incence and savagery of 'The Fahrenheit Twins', we are redeemed, abandoned, beloved and laid bare but we are always recognisable.This is a writer at the height of his powers.
