— Yann Martel, previous Journey Prize winner and the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi

Verified Purchase
I bought this collection on the strength of the judges. I knew such talented writers would chose excellent stories and indeed they have. This is an eclectic mix of modern literary fiction short stories. Really worth a purchase and a read. Looking forward to reading more from all of them.
