What happens when the everyday meets the surreal, when the adult world of middle England meets the imagination of children? In a series of dark and magical tales, Mick Jackson explores the possibilities, and revives the art, of storytelling. From the only child who falls asleep for fifteen years, to the hermit-like Pearce sisters, who prey on the strangers on 'their' beach; and from the homemade row boat that leads one old man from his cellar to a magical cavern for the retired, to the little boy who discovers the secrets for bringing butterflies back to life, Ten Sorry Tales is an exquisite collection at turns funny, gothic, moving and sad.
