Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

    One of Comma’s acclaimed anthologies, featuring the best of the UK’s emerging short story writers. While these stories take in a vast array of subjects and styles, they share a common attribute: they demand our participation, urging us to fill in the blanks, the spaces between the words. They’re stories that always keep something held back - whether it’s a concealed motivation, a mysterious confederation of the familiar and the far-fetched, or an image with the eloquence to convey what a character could never articulate – it’s their very reticence that makes them so compelling.

    Praise for Jim Hinks 'Full of insights and surprises' - The Guardian, 'Ten Best Books Set in Istanbul'.
