A Fragile Hope, Ken N. Kamoche

Details 

These are poignant stories of love, betrayal, dreams and tribulation, corruption and redemption. Whether we’re reading about the Hong Kong girl who reconciles with her estranged father following a chance encounter with an African musician, or the hangman whose life is torn apart by demons from the past, these stories take the reader on a journey that is as emotional as it is culturally rich.

A Girl’s Arm, Gee Williams

Details 

A Girl’s Arm is a collection of stories homing in on the pressure points in the lives of its characters. Although a mixed bag from a variety of backgrounds — an apparently nerveless woman rock climber, a young classicist on the academic make, an estranged son just dropping by after many years — with a couple of exceptions they would be classed as ‘ordinary’.

A Little Javanese, André Mangeot

Details 

Here are five haunting stories – two of them virtual novellas – about the shifting landscapes of mind and place. In beautifully evoked locations – France, Russia, Latin America, the Far East – lives unfold and unravel under pressure, to sometimes shocking outcomes.

Mangeot's characters face complex situations or decisions that define the nature of what it means to be human: our capacity for good, evil, strength and weakness. His writing shifts effortlessly between haunting, poetic rhythms and fast, sharp-edged dialogue. And his capacity to conjure a strong sense of place is at times redolent of Maugham and Hemingway. If you like writing that is authentic, unexpected and imbued with the scent and mystery of other lands, this collection will not disappoint you.

A Man Walks into a Kitchen, Robert Graham

Details 

In mid-60s Belfast, Eddie Francey is a young comedian trying to get a break. He wonders if he has what it takes, but he has responsibilities: a wife and young son. He worries if he is the kind of guy who will take the necessary risks, the kind to jump off a cliff. This is the point when an explosive passion for another woman, who could not be more off-limits, overtakes him. Family means a lot to him. All he has ever dreamt of is success. The last thing he needs at the moment is to fall for the last woman on earth he ought to fall for. A Man Walks Into A Kitchen is both love story and comedy. But will the comedy in the end turn into a tragedy?
