A talent for razor-sharp, satirical observation - Nigel Jenkins Susie Wild's debut collection is a quirky mix in which tales of the fantastic and the everyday are told with inimitable style and flair. The deranged cravings of a mum-to-be lead to the accidental poisoning of her co-worker in 'Pica'. Rob holidays in his bathroom and dreams about his underage love interest in 'Aquatic Life'. The poignant and subtle novella 'Arrivals' unfolds slowly, revealing a mother and daughter in opposite corners of the planet, both experiencing their own personal revelation.
