BOOKTRUST - TEN BRITISH SHORT STORY COLLECTIONS...
I am really amazed and delighted that 'Words from a Glass Bubble' is among ten short story collections by Brit writers, chosen by Booktrust, and featured on the Booktrust website. Even more delighted that Salt Publishing have not one but two collections up there - the wonderful 'White Road and Other Stories' by Tania Hershman keeps 'Bubble' company.
Lovely lovely that Adam Marek's 'Instruction Manual for Swallowing' is in the list too, and Clare Wigfall's 'Louder Sound and Nothing' - (it is the Frank O'Connor Class of 2008 - that was obviously a great year!) It is also particularly nice to see the small presses represented well!! Slightly daunting to be mentioned in the same feature as A L Kennedy and James Lasdun, Courttia Newland, Helen Simpson...yikes.
