Why Don't You Stop Talking by Jackie Kay

Regular price $8.50 Sale

Following on from her award-winning first novel, 'Trumpet,' comes a collection of superlative stories. In true Kay style, these small masterpieces cover a great deal of emotional and narrative terrain, from an immaculate observation of the female physiognomy to the bewilderment of the elderly; from silent hidden love to a lifetime reminiscence of an immigrant's England. Warm and tender, frightening and funny, these stories confirm the arrival of a major storyteller. 'A stunner. I am heartbroken to have finished it' Ali Smith 'The beauty of Kay's stories is in how much they continue to resonate long after finishing' TIME OUT 'These pieces contain - and ultimately liberate - definitively human ordinariness, a rigmarole of isolation and love, fidelity and betrayal, noise and silence, birth and death' GUARDIAN 'One of the liveliest talents of her generation' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH This 2003 Picador Paperback is in Near Mint condition.
