What to read after... Elmer 21/05/20
From Hereabout Hill
This is a collection of short stories from a highly acclaimed storyteller, which includes a poignant tale about civil war, where a young girl hides from enemy soldiers in a public toilet; a haunting tale of a little girl swept out to sea while collecting cowrie shells; and the moving account of two brothers, who, over the years, create a mental picture of their absent father.
The stories encompass themes of life, death, friendship, love and revenge and each is preceded by a short paragraph explaining the inspiration behind it. The collection is thought-provoking and a joy to read.
