This Could Be Everything

Witty and warm and full of character, it will sit alongside One Day as a book that made you cry and laugh and that you’ll want to recommend to your friends.

How to Gut a Fish
by Sheila Armstrong
£9.99

An unsettling and brilliant collection of short stories. There is a hint of Shirley Jackson to these oblique tales of women’s bodies and violence. Written in spare but evocative prose, and with a real eye for description. This was one of our favourite collections of last year, and the paperback is out now.
