Click here to read an exclusive blog piece by Lucy Caldwell about her new short story collection "Openings".


'So varied, so subtle, so tonally poised - a stunning collection.' TESSA HADLEY 'One of the finest short-storywriters at work today. These stories are honest, finely nuanced and indelible in their impact.' WENDY ERSKINE 'You'll lose yourself in this collection and, most likely, find yourself too. Each story is a masterclass in attentiveness.' JAN CARSON The much-anticipated new collection from the BBC National Short Story Award-winning author of Multitudes and Intimacies . I still sometimes wonder if one could draw a window in the wall, or in the air, and step through it together. To somewhere else, entirely new. From a passionate affair in Blitz-era London, to a highly charged Christmas party in Belfast, to a trip to Marrakech which could form a new family, the thirteen striking stories of Openings pulse with possibility and illuminate those fleeting but recognisable moments of heartbreak and hope that can change the course of a life. 'It takes a writer as subtle, compassionate and clear-eyed as Caldwell to track the hidden forces that work upon us, to illuminate our secret selves. This is prose that liberates.' CLAIRE KILROY 'Caldwell has a glorious skill for creating narratives in which every element works in perfect tandem.' SUNDAY TIMES
