Review:

"Mackay's observational precision is outstanding; she writes like an angel wielding a scalpel, dissecting her characters with sublime, sharp-edged prose... Her stories are grand entertainment" ( Guardian)

"You have to marvel at the brilliance of her prose and the intelligent humanity of her voice" ( Evening Standard)

"Her work is unlike anyone else's... a new book from Mackay is cause for celebration... The Atmospheric Railway deserves a fanfare... Shena Mackay is nothing short of a national treasure" (Cressida Connolly Spectator)

"A brilliant new collection, a rare treat" (Natalie Sandison The Times)

"With this polished collection, she proves to anybody who might still view the short story as somehow inferior to the novel that the opposite is true - it is an art form at which few authors manage to excel at this level. The Atmospheric Railway is an absolute delight" (Vanessa Curtis Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description:

A wonderful collection from one of our greatest short-story writers.
