Attrib and Other Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Attrib and Other Stories Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This debut collection from Eley Williams centres upon the difficulties of communication and the way one's thoughts may never be fully communicable and yet can overwhelm you.

Attrib. celebrates the tricksiness of language just as it confronts its limits.

Correspondingly, the stories are littered with the physical ephemera of language: dictionaries, dog-eared pages, bookmarks and old coffee stains on older books.

This is writing that centres on the weird, tender intricacies of the everyday.

A bold new collection from one of Britain's most original new writers.
