Summary

SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDGE HILL SHORT STORY PRIZE 2019
LONGLISTED FOR THE RATHBONES FOLIO PRIZE 2019

Mothers is peopled by men and women who find themselves at crossroads or dead ends – characters who search without knowing what they seek. From remote and wild Exmoor to ancient Swedish burial sites and hedonistic Mexican weddings, these stories lay bare the emotional and psychic damage of life and love in a stunning debut collection.

These marvellously crafted stories brim with menace and moments of truth.

Sunday Times

The extraordinary thing about Chris Power’s stories is the range of personalities and worlds he can inhabit. The sentences and paragraphs are simple but the more you look at them, the deeper they become. How wonderful to encounter this great new talent.
