A Cat, A Hat and a Piece of String
A second short story collection from Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat and Peaches for Monsieur le Curé.
‘Stories are like Russian dolls; open them up, and in each one you’ll find another story.’
Conjured from a wickedly imaginative pen, here is a new collection of short stories that showcases Joanne Harris’s exceptional storytelling art. Sensuous, wicked, mischievous, uproarious and wry, here are tales that combine the everyday with the unexpected; wild fantasy with bittersweet reality.
From the house where it is Christmas all year round, to a ghost who lives on a Twitter timeline; from the Congo where a young girl braves the raging rapids to earn a crust of bread, to Norse gods battling for survival in Manhattan; and a newborn baby created with sugar, spice and lashings of cake, these stories will ensnare and delight you with their variety and inventiveness.
"At times fantastical, often hilarious and sometimes intense, these are tidbits to be treasured. Delicious from start to finish."
