In his debut collection of award-winning stories, Nick Mulgrew tells fourteen subtly interlinked tales set along the Southern African coastline from Cape Town to Mozambique, in which relationships, dreams and even narrators die: where fields catch fire, towers implode and the shadows of the past grow long. But even from the most uneasy corners tourist traps, colonial purgatories and libraries for the blind's these stories offer small mercies: glimpses of faith, beauty, and the possibility of salvation, no matter how slight.
Told with the magpie's eye for the vivid in the ordinary, and the surreal in the everyday, Stations presents a fresh, compelling and essential new voice.
