Paradise Block, Hardback Book

Paradise Block Hardback

Hardback

Description

'Taps into a deep and compelling strangeness with vigour and humour and heart...

A disturbing and moving collection' Chris Power, author of MothersIn Paradise Block, mould grows as thick as fur along the walls, alarms ring out at unexpected hours and none of the neighbours are quite what they seem.

A little girl boils endless eggs in her family's burnt-out flat, an isolated old woman entices a new friend with gifts of cutlery and cufflinks, and a young bride grows frustrated with her unappreciative husband, the caretaker of creaking, dilapidated Paradise Block. With a haunting sense of place and a keen eye for the absurd, these thirteen surreal stories lure us into a topsy-turvy world where fleatraps are more important than babies and sales calls for luxury coffins provide a welcome distraction.

Lonely residents live in close proximity while longing for connection.
