Eye of a Needle Release date: 30 September

COVER SMALL

Influenced by Lydia Davis, Maxine Chernoff and Flannery O’Connor, this debut collection of short stories is an interesting blend of flash fiction and longer narratives. ‘Running a stop street’ and ‘Thoughts of a soldier’ experiment with punctuation, ‘Opposites attract’ uses the same sentence structure to demonstrate opposing concepts, while ‘Love at first bite’ takes a cheeky look at love through the lens of a Mills & Boon novel.

The gritty reality of ‘Shadow kids’ coexists with the imaginary world created in ‘Akere’. The fable ‘Courage the mouse’ is light and playful while ‘To die for’ describes an abusive relationship.

Told in the first, second and third person the stories in the collection are designed to take the reader on a journey into the writer’s world with passion, insight and humour.

“A worthy collection.” Eben Venter
