  • Praise for Maria Crossan 'Manchester is fast becoming the UK's most influential centre for short story writing, and much of this is due to the passionate championing of the genre by Ra Page, founder of Comma Press.'
    The Guardian
    'A fine streetwise cacophony.'
    The Independent
    'Acquaint yourself with these fresh and varied new literary voices.'
    The Independent on Sunday
    'Europe is heavy with history and the trace left by cataclysm and upheaval. These are present in these tales, and yet coexist with a kind of wry and knowing playfulness.'
    A.S. Byatt in The Times
    'A stellar collection.'
    The Times Online
