Description

Separated From the Sea is the debut short story collection from award-winning author, Amanda Huggins.

Crossing oceans from Japan to New York and from England to Havana, these stories are filled with a sense of yearning, of loss, of not quite belonging, of not being sure that things are what you thought they were. They are stories imbued with pathos and irony, humour and hope.

Evie meets a past love but he's not the person she thinks he is; a visit to the most romantic city in the world reveals the truth about an affair; Satseko discovers an attentive neighbour is much more than that; Eleanor's journey on the London Underground doesn't take her where she thought it would.

Review quote

This is a writer who knows her craft. Never a word out place, poignant, sometimes sad, sometimes startling, these stories fit worlds into small spaces. A long awaited debut. Angela Readman - author of Don't Try This At Home

Amanda's work is well crafted, subtle, and shows a deft hand. I love the way she gets into the psychology of each character, delving into their secret wishes and desires, giving us insights into how and why people act the way they do. A M Howcroft, InkTears - author of Nobody Will Ever Love You

The reader is transported to many different countries to experience relationships and emotions at the peak of a single moment in the characters' lives. The writing is flawless and carefully shaded, the layers of meaning unfolding elegantly. Joanna Campbell - author of When Planet Slip Their Tracks

If you want the perfect witness to a crime, Amanda Huggins is your woman. She notices everything about the people, places and the things around her. Colours, temperature, sounds, the lot. And she gets all this down in lovely little stories that spin around in the readers' head, dizzying us with her powerful images of loss, regret and yearning. David Gaffney - author of All The Places I've Ever Lived
