This bold and striking new anthology showcases Cornwall's finest contemporary writers, combining established and new voices.Ghosts walk in the open and infidelities are conducted in plain sight. Two teenagers walk along a perfect beach in the anticipation of a first kiss. Time stops for nothing ? not even for death. Sometimes time cracks, disrupting a fragile equilibrium. The stories are peopled with locals and incomers, sailors and land dwellers; a diver searches the deep for what she has lost, and forbidden lovers meet in secret places. Throughout, the writers' words reveal a love of the incomparable Cornish landscape.
Cornish Short Stories Paperback edition by Emma Timpany
Editors Emma Timpany and Felicity Notley are the organizers of the Falmouth-based writing group Telltales, which showcases and inspires new writers. Both accomplished writers in their own right, they have a long list publications to their name. Heavily immersed in the writing and arts community, they organize and attend numerous events throughout the year.
In the aftermath of a devastating earthquake Sarah travels back to her home town with her young son and is forced to face what she fled from years ago.
Set in the wild, beautiful and unreliable landscape of southern New Zealand, Emma Timpany's novella is an evocative story of a woman coming to terms with her past and forging a brighter future.
