“The Lake” – a Short Story in “Overheard: stories to Read Aloud”

OverheardI’m very pleased to say that today is the publication day for Overheard – Stories to Read Aloud, edited by Jonathan Taylor and published by Salt Publications.

My contribution to the collection (in the section called “Laughing Stories”)  is called “The Lake”, a story I owe to a strange encounter with a nude bather, several years ago, somewhere in the hills of Bulgaria: but don’t buy this wonderful collection just on my account. It’s full of great stories by the likes of Ian McEwan, Louis de Bernières, Hanif Kureshi, Vanessa Gebbie, Tania Hershman, Kate Pullinger, Salman Rushdie, Blake Morrison, not to mention many of my wonderful fellow writers from here at De Montfort University. What better in the cold, winter months than turning off the TV, unplugging the internet, and spending your evenings with friends, reading out loud?
