Wish I Was Here

by Jackie Kay
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2011)

Wish I Was Here by Jackie Kay Tales of passion and jealousy, lust and romance from the award-winning author of Trumpet.
 
This fierce, funny and compassionate collection explores every facet of that most overwhelming and complicated of human emotions: love. With winning directness, Jackie Kay captures her charactersí greatest joy and greatest vulnerability, exposing the moments of tenderness, of shock, of bravery and stupidity that accompany the search for love, the discovery of love and, most of all, loveís loss.

"No on in the world writes short stories like Jackie Kay. This is a collection full of voice, life, hilarity. Her writing has a truthfulness that's both hard-won and beautiful."
(Ali Smith)
