“Ruth Brandt’s exceptionally readable stories carry the reader into the light and dark heart of our shared hopes and fears. Always subtle, with a deft understatement and pared-back style, these are stories that open up our understanding of how we are. They are quietly unforgettable.”   -   Jonathan Davidson, poet and memoirist

Price - £8.99 + £1.85 P&P
Ruth Brandt’s debut short story collection tackles stubborn, impulsive and adrenaline-seeking human nature. From the formation of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the early life of Turing, to modern day families, Brandt lays bare the social systems and customs we live by.
 
To read and recognise Brandt’s characters is to recognise humans are social chameleons - an acknowledgement that through pain, loss and memories of war, we can choose to love and live with abandon.

When American soldiers invade Iraq searching for weapons of mass destruction, Kesari the Bengal tiger and other wildlife are at the mercy of guns and keeper, Hassan. Entrenched in perpetual fear, Hassan must exercise Godly powers over his creatures in his attempts to save them - and himself.
