Why Don't You Stop Talking
Following on from her award-winning first novel, Trumpet, comes a collection of superlative stories.
In true Kay style, these small masterpieces cover a great deal of emotional and narrative terrain, from an immaculate observation of the female physiognomy to the bewilderment of the elderly; from silent hidden love to a lifetime reminiscence of an immigrant's England. Warm and tender, frightening and funny, these stories confirm the arrival of a major storyteller.
'A stunner. I am heartbroken to have finished it' Ali Smith
'The beauty of Kay's stories is in how much they continue to resonate long after finishing' TIME OUT
'These pieces contain - and ultimately liberate - definitively human ordinariness, a rigmarole of isolation and love, fidelity and betrayal, noise and silence, birth and death' GUARDIAN
'One of the liveliest talents of her generation' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
