We're proud to have a wonderful selection of fiction here at Tangent Books! Featuring local, national and international writers, our collection of fiction ranges from poetry, short stories and fictions to full length novels. Check out the full collection here.
My Mother Was an Upright Piano by Tania Hershman
A scintillating collection of 56 short fictions by one of the genre’s most daring exponents, whose economy of words cloaks her subtlety and power. Tania Hershman’s work is powerful, spiky and off-beat but with a distinct warmth and affection for her subjects. ﾠA Bristol-based writer, Tania is the chair of this year's judging panel for the Bristol Short Story Prize.
Catacombs of Terror by Stanley Donwood
This page-turning terror of a book is written by Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood, and features an amazing, 50s-inspired cover design by Chris Hopewell of Jackknife Prints.
Bristol Short Story Prize Anthology, vol. 8
A very happy new year to you.
We're really looking forward to the year ahead at Tangent Books, with lots of exciting projects in the pipelines and we'll be keeping you updated with all our Tangential News here, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
If you're in need of a little New Year's resolution inspiration, take a look at this gem from Ira Rainey:
Fat Man to Green Man is the tale of one forty-something man's journey from fat to fit, an honest and light-hearted chronicle of the trials and tribulations of going from couch potato to ultra-marathon runner.
Far from being an elite athlete with superhuman running abilities like the ones he read about in books, Ira Rainey was an overweight and unfit slacker who felt a bit sorry for himself because he had sore feet. Sure he ran a bit, but he also sat around a lot and ate and drank too much.
That was until a friend was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given months to live. It was to be an event that would push Ira to tackle his apathy towards life and take on the challenge of becoming an ultramarathon runner, pushing himself to go further than he had ever gone before.
Anyway, wishing you the happiest of years ahead!
