Three celebrated literary fiction writers inspire magic, hope and love in the face of stories of acute grief and loss.
When We were Birds – for fans of Arundhati Roy, Toni Morrison and Monique Roffey – is a mythic love story set in Trinidad about two outsiders and their connection with the dead. A modern-day fable that has touched reader's hearts, in Isaac and the Egg a young man, suicidal with grief after his wife's death, makes a transformative journey... a truly enchanting tale. Twelve Months and a Day follows two love stories, cut short by death... leaving two bewildered, romantic ghosts – 'a Truly, Madly, Deeply for our times'.
