Jean Sprackland

Synopsis

Featuring: Jean Sprackland, Sean O'Brien & Tim Cooke

The first in a new series of books celebrating the 'short story sequence' - that interlocking daisy-chain of narrative produced when stories knit together to form a continuum of character or theme. Taking its leaf from the Penguin Modern Poets series, each book will feature three authors, offering sequences of five or six stories each. Some of those featured will be established authors, others previously unpublished writers. Part 1 of the series features the first collected fiction of two of the UK's most important poets, Sean O'Brien and Jean Sprackland, alongside new writer Tim Cooke.

Reviews
