The Separate Heart by Simon Robson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


If there is a thread running through Simon Robson's brilliant collection of stories it is the notion of separateness - of adults from each other, of children from adult knowledge, of adult consciousness from the vividness of childhood. His protagonists are often unlikely - a cat, a man, met in a bar, who drove a chariot in Ben Hur, a girl who gets up very early - but these stories are satisfyingly long and devoid of modernist trickery; rather they are wise, funny, beautifully observed and somehow utterly true.


Runner-up for Edge Hill Prize for the Short Story 2008.
Shortlisted for Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award 2007.
