Abstract

In 1999 a spiky anthology of young writing was the first title to appear from the Tindal Street imprint and the first on a prize-winning road ahead. Ten years on, Tindal Street Press celebrates a decade of publishing - and of commitment to the short story and the wealth of regional writing talent - with a showcase that's just as ground-breaking. Prize-winning author Catherine O'Flynn here presents a range of exciting new voices from the next generation of English short story writers. 'Welcome to the cul-de-sac that opens out in twenty-two directions to unknown destinations....'

Notes: ''An impressive selection picked by Costa First Novel winner Catherine O'Flynn. Iain Grant's ''Six of the Best'' quirkily shifts the dynamics of a pupil encountering his old teacher, Megan Dunn's ''The Mermaid and the Music Box'' ends in a wonderful weird tableau of mermaids combing their hair on the top of the Empire State Building and Rodge Glass's ''I know my team...'' unsentimentally captures the uneasiness between a daughter and the father she reluctantly visits in a nursing home. Almost every one of the 22 stories makes you want to hear more from their creators'' Guardian
