The Man in the Shed

ebook

The Man in the Shed is a haunting collection of stories about family and longing, from the author of the multi-award-winning Mister Pip.

A boy watches his mother hooked and reeled ashore by a fisherman. A couple give up their seats on a bus for lovers soon to be parted. A husband enters a world imagined by his wife and pretends to be the man she loves.

Lloyd Jones's extraordinary tales take conventional family life and tilt it sideways, delivering a memorable blend of the suburban and the surreal.

'Jones takes huge risks in this collection. But each piece crackles with originality, startling images and lucidity....it's what Jones leaves out that takes root in the mind, stays there and reveals even deeper subtleties on rereading.' Listener
