Synopsis

The much-anticipated fiction follow-up to Vertigo, this collection cements Joanna Walsh's reputation as one of the sharpest writers of this century. Wearing her learning lightly, Walsh's stories make us see the world afresh while showing us she has read the world. In 'Like a Fish Needs a ...' - perhaps the funniest, most freewheeling story ever written about cycling (and Freud and and and ...) you read shenanigans worthy of Flann O'Brien. Meanwhile, in 'Worlds from the Word's End', Walsh conjures up a country in which words themselves fall out of fashion - something that will never happen wherever Walsh is read.

Staff Choice

The much-anticipated follow up to Vertigo, this collection will not disappoint. These stories are sharp and perceptive, but Walsh’s clever wordplay and subversive humour stops anything before it becomes too bleak – even when imagining a world where words have become obsolete. Bookselves in particular, where your bookshelf becomes some kind of presence who reads all the books you leave languishing unread, made me smile. A diverse collection that allows the simple, yet elegant, language to shine.
