The Fish On My Ear and Other Stories

The Fish on my Ear and otehr stories

The Fish On My Ear and Other Stories comprises six tales of characters large and small, astute and foolish, pitched into situations few of us would choose. As in “Augustus, Hadrian and Me”, where death has just visited and those remaining find, like a defensive wall, they must regroup. As in “A Civil Affair”, where a fatal accident from the past haunts the characters, controlling their moods and shaping their lives, long after the event. Or as in “Benchmarks”, where death is a frequent visitor but solace can be found in celebration. And of course, as in “The Fish On My Ear”, where death arrives when least expected.

Including “Benchmarks” winner of the 2012 Chelmsford Festival Short Story Prize and “Window Gazing” which earned the runners-up prize at the 2012 Charleston Short Story Festival.
