Description

'Original, occasionally nuts, sometimes poignant...'

How do we get out when the world traps us inside? There's no single escape for the characters in these twenty-nine short and very short stories. Some of them break, some unwind, some rewind, some leave the planet, some scream at the wind, others lock themselves away and forget they were ever here. One or two simply ascend. It's often the only practical way out of the cage.

'Angel Caging is funny, startling and sometimes profound' - Jo Cannon, author of Insignificant Gestures.

'Original, occasionally nuts, sometimes poignant ... beneath the surface narratives lurk some surprising truths' - Vanessa Gebbie, author of The Coward's Tale & Words from a Glass Bubble.

'From satire to macabre, from science fiction to contemporary ... a debut well worth your time.' - reviewer.

---

A comedian searches for the funny side of depression.

A poet in space learns the hard way about time dilation.

A father and son bond through pig abuse.

Fruit flies get organised.

Turkeys celebrate the fall of humankind.

Somewhere in England a woman loses her words while her husband watches X Factor.

And more.
