Wish I Was Here

by Jackie Kay - £8.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330511810 | ISBN 10: 0330511815

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 characters’ 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, love’s 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)
