The Smile In The Garden With The Starfish, short stories, FREE till Sunday
My new collection of short stories is free on Kindle until Sun 15th Jan
In The Smile In The Garden With The Starfish an old photograph of a childhood friend triggers vivid pre-war memories. In The Long Pig, a young missionary sets himself up on a remote Pacific island where everything is done backwards. In The Doughnut Dome a new conservatory extension brightens up a nosy neighbor's Sunday afternoons. Plus a Chinese fairy story where the ancient wisdom of Tao meets the digital age.
"The writing has that quality which is to be found in good poetry of stirring the reader's memories and emotions so that they get added in and increase its effect. I wonder if you can produce more work of this standard and charm - a volume perhaps rather in the manner of Laurie Lee. Outstanding."
- Michael Legat, Editorial director, Corgi Books, Cassell & Co, short story comp judge on The Smile In The Garden With The Starfish
Literary Fiction At Its Best
I've read and enjoyed all Stephanie Zia's books, and for me this is her writing at its very best. Lyrical, confident and polished, and most unusual story lines. Really very good indeed. Amazon 2thumbsup reviewer
