WORLDS FROM THE WORD’S END | BOOK REVIEW
Joanna Walsh (And Other Stories)
A unique collection of short stories, Joanna Walsh’s sharply observed prose provides an immersing and refreshing read. The impactive work of fiction combines different cultures, themes and relationships and includes a variety of subject matters. There is a story within the pages that will resonate – from the intriguing Hauptbahnhof, where one person manages to live whilst waiting for a mysterious acquaintance, to the immersing Bookselves, detailing a detachment of oneself who is able to take time out with the unread books. With such a slim volume, every word is precious and the author manages to use each word to its maximum effect. A thought-provoking and charming combination of work which will linger in the mind long after you’ve turned the last page.
