The Day Chuck Berry Died by Ian Inglis


A collection of eclectic and original short stories that bring into focus those decisive moments in a person’s life whose significance may not be recognised at the time, but which often have profound and lasting impacts long into the future.

The distorted contours of human nature, as practised in the daily activities of professional footballers; the repercussions of a young man's visit to the battlefields of Flanders to visit his grandfather’s grave; a surprising encounter in a Parisian cafe; a boyhood friendship threatened by the evils of apartheid; the dilemma of parents excluded from their son’s wedding; the search for the author of a mysterious postcard. Choices made on the basis of what we know – or what we think we know – which come back to torment us, challenge us, enlighten us; attitudes and behaviour we can barely comprehend; routine events and situations that bring with them periods of great sadness or unexpected happiness; confusion and clarity when long-hidden truths are finally revealed.

Tragedy, comedy, romance and history – these stories explore the patterns of all our lives.

A Feast of Tales, Gently Twisted by Dawn Bush


A tempting tale for every mood.

An eclectic mixture of tales that take you to a pragmatic Fairyland, where anything can happen – and not all of it beneficial; to an unknown dusty planet in the distant sky; and back in time on earth  through time, space, land and sea; through love, selfishness and triumph. They are a feast of the unexpected.

A Feast of Tales, Gently Twisted is an intriguing collection of short stories by Dawn Bush.

A charming selection of stories. With some fairy tales and other contemporary stories, there is a mixture of wit and realism. But all beautifully written. Thoroughly recommended.
What a wealth of stories, such variety! If I had to select my favourites, I think I would choose ‘Blind Date’, ‘The Ormolu Clock’ and ‘The Storyteller’. But I enjoyed them all. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys lighthearted short stories with a twist in the tail/tale! Nothing macabre here, nothing to make you cringe, just really good, entertaining reads!
