SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED ARTWORK BY PAUL REID

Signed by the author & artist

"Erskine is less interested in dispensing wisdom than in evoking the ambient pathos of ordinary lives. The understated yet distinctive sensibility first showcased in her 2018 debut collection, Sweet Home, is well honed in this impressive follow-up."
Financial Times

"The stories are never sentimental, nor do they strain credulity. What grounds them is Erskine’s distinctive style: she is a great noticer, with an eye for microscopic detail, and pays close attention to the syntax and cadences of ordinary conversation . . . She is also extremely funny."
Spectator

"A spectacular feat in the short story form . . . Erskine’s Dance Move has such a beautiful deftness of touch that in writing the intricacies and intimacies between people in their most vulnerable moments, there is a tenderness felt by the reader which surpasses words."
Caught By The River

Wendy Erskine lives in Belfast. Her first collection, Sweet Home, was longlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize, shortlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize and the Edge Hill Prize, and won the 2020 Butler Literary Award.
