Author(s): Jo Randerson
A king struggles to love his talentless son, a businessman disconnects from reality in a Paris airport, a mother grapples with the implications of quantum physics, and a little boy who can talk to the dead learns to silence their voices. Unsettlingly funny stories that defy the conventional division between the everyday and the supernatural world. From the fiercely original, award-winning writer Jo Randerson.
“These powerful, gripping, and quintessentially Randersonesque stories are most probably about me.” — Taika Waititi
