Worlds from the Word's End

by Joanna Walsh - £8.99  And Other Stories (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781911508106 | ISBN 10: 1911508105

This collection cements Joanna Walsh’s reputation as one of the sharpest writers of this century. Wearing her learning lightly, Walsh’s stories make us see the world afresh while showing us she has read the world. In ‘Like a Fish Needs a...’ – perhaps the funniest, most freewheeling story ever written about cycling (and Freud and and and...) you read shenanigans worthy of Flann O’Brien. Meanwhile, in ‘Worlds from the Word’s End’, Walsh conjures up a country in which words themselves fall out of fashion – something that will never happen wherever Walsh is read.

"Joanna Walsh is clever, funny and merciless. She abducts people from their apparently normal lives and confronts them with the fact that dystopia is not a place in the future but a room in their own house."
(Yuri Herrera)
