What, or who, is your reason for everything? And what would you be prepared to do to keep it that way?
A short story collection full of the emotion, darkness and the unnerving parts of human existence we often prefer to keep hidden – even from ourselves.
Everyone has something that drives them. Terrifies them. Pushes them to extremes. Everyone has something that eats into their existence. Women whose domestic struggles hide much deeper concerns and dangers. An undertaker who goes to great lengths to preserve life as she wants it. A young woman in red who discovers a wolf with a terrible tale to tell. An affair revealed amid night-time tension and the wielding of a cheese knife. Men and women who have to battle the most dreadful ordeals in silence.
Love, hate, fear, guilt and regret all rear their heads amid the backdrop of apparently ordinary lives, in this emotive and often dark and unnerving collection which houses a number of prize-winning tales, together with new short stories.
So think about it – what would you do to hold on to your reason for everything?
