Description

An astonishing debut collection - twenty-nine short and very short stories by Martin Reed. "Angel Caging is funny, startling and sometimes profound" - Jo Cannon, author. A stand-up comic searches for the funny side of childhood depression and copulating ponies. A father and son bond through pig abuse. Fruit flies get organised. An interstellar poet learns the hard way about time dilation. Turkeys celebrate the fall of man. A woman loses her words while her husband watches X Factor. These stories are by turns haunting, evocative, absurd and human. Martin Reed's short fiction has been published widely in print and online. This is his first collection. -------------------------- From the cover: "'It rapes carpets. Nice pedal, ' said Mags. It wasn't what she was trying to say. Not nearly. Not again, she thought." How do we get out when the world traps us inside? There is 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. Martin Reed's short fiction has been published Martin Reed's short fiction has been published widely in print and online.
