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.

About the Author:

Mick Jackson's second novel, Five Boys (2001), was described in the Sunday Times as 'vibrant, happily eccentric and a joy to read'. His previous novel, The Underground Man (1998), was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the Whitbread First Novel Award, and was the winner of the Royal Society of Authors' First Novel Award. He lives in Brighton.

Review:

"'Wonderfully macabre, crookedly comic short stories... Jackson is a genuine English eccentric.' Trevor Lewis, Sunday Times 'I'm pretty sure an eight-year-old would love the weirdness of Ten Sorry Tales. So, too, would a teenager. Me? I loved them.' Kate Chisholm, Sunday Telegraph"
