In this first full-length collection, Anna Mendelssohn continues her explorations of power, persecution and loss. Mendelssohn’s work shows the intense relationship between agency and structure in the modern world. Her magical, weaving and at times painful lyric poetry draws us into an ecstatic vision of our own dependencies, dreams and desires.

“Tireless anthologist Nicholas Royle resurrects an erstwhile Heinemann series, dormant since 1994. Lee Rourke's ‘Emergency Exit’ and Alan Beard's ‘Staff Development’ interrogate office life. Hilary Mantel's ‘Comma’ seems like a horror story, only to transform into something much sadder. Philip Langeskov's ‘Notes on a Love Story’ is Sebaldian in the way it shimmers between story, essay and documentary fragment. Let's hope this series becomes an annual fixture.” —Chris Power The Guardian
