A startling and unusual collection Oct. 9 2005
By Semioticghost - Published on
Format: Paperback
I initially read this collection of short stories when studying language and literature and was bowled over, because Kennedy's writing and characterisations come across as both startling and fascinating. Having re-read this, I'm still willing to grant it the 'unusual' tag, but I was not quite as wowed as I was when enjoying them without the benefit of having read a lot of short fiction. Two stories still stand out as really special - the one that lends this connection its title, and 'Tea and Biscuits', both dealing with 'ordinary' people thrown into sudden change by a single event.
