Show Off edited by Joe Bunting
Joe Bunting has served up a tasty sampler plate in his new volume Show Off.
With short stories by ten different writers there is a flavour to please anyone.
These are not fluffy, feel good tales, they are raw and real. Each voice has a different way of dealing with emotions brought to the surface by things like death, or dementia or loss of faith.
As a writer of fiction and poetry I read the work of others not only for content but for the play of words one against the other. A compilation like this tickles my tongue.
If I have any complaint at all it is that I wanted more.
