Closure: Contemporary Black British Short Stories

by Various authors - £9.99  Peepal Tree Press Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781845232887 | ISBN 10: 1845232887

As the narrative mode across cultures and time, the short story form wings from oral “folktales” to myths of origin, from parables of caution to contemporary narratives of disclosure, disquiet and discovery. Humans have always valued the short story as a way to make sense of the world, and their place in it. Closure is essentially about human striving.
Closure is the first Black British short story anthology since IC3 (2000). Where IC3 voiced a burning for self-definition, Closure takes Black Britishness as read – a lived reality that is like air or breath or blood.
Closure has a variety of forms, styles and a rich diversity of theme. As a title “Closure” invited a subversive response from contributors, and this anthology is filled with stories which, like life, rarely end in the way we might expect...
