by Chris Power
Chris Power's stories are peopled by men and women who find themselves at crossroads or dead ends - characters who search without knowing what they seek. A woman uses her mother's old travel guide to navigate nowhere; a stand-up comic with writer's block performs a fateful gig at a cocaine-filled bachelor party; on holiday in Greece, a father must confront the limits to which he can keep his daughters safe.
From remote and wild Exmoor to ancient Swedish burial sites and hedonistic Mexican weddings, these stories lay bare the emotional and psychic damage of life, love and abandonment.
Mothers proves the vital importance of short fiction and announces the debut of an exceptional literary voice.
