The worlds smallest unicorn, and other stories
An elederly woman, once an intrepid journalist, is paralysed with apprehension at the thought of meeting the daughter of her dearest friend. A budding writer is taken on as amanuensis by a famous woman novelist, with disasterous results. A would-be biographer visits a home for retired clowns. . . With her miraculously sharp eye for the telling detail, her nose for the smouldering behind the most staid suburban facades, Shena Mackay's stories combine the macabre and mundane to brilliant effect.
