Beschreibung

Heading Inland is a funny, broody, saucy collection of stories about the kind of people you sometimes meet but might prefer to ignore.

Nicola Barker was born in Ely in 1966 and spent part of her childhood in South Africa. Among her seven previous novels are 'Darkmans' (short-listed for the 2007 Booker and Ondaatje prizes, and winner of the Hawthornden) and 'Wide Open' (winner of the 2000 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award). She has also written two prize-winning collections of short-stories, 'Love Your Enemies' and 'Heading Inland', and her work has been translated into more than twenty languages. She lives in east London.

'Strange and magical!Barker goes from strength to strength.' Sunday Telegraph 'A singular, soaring, stratospheric talent.' Scotland on Sunday 'Devastatingly funny and totally original!only Will Self can match her for black humour and bizarre fabrications!No one else in England writes like this. Don't miss this book.' Tatler 'A witty, demotic and unique talent.' The Times 'The language is unfussy, direct, at times colloquial, and then, just when it is needed to produce the right emotional counterpoint, elegant and formal!What could have been heavy-handed in another writer's hands is here transformed into something light, enchanting and moving. Heading Inland achieves everything it sets out to do. Highly recommended.' Literary Review 'Another extremely accomplished collection. The writing is sharp, intricate and stylish. Each story presents its own particular and perfectly realized world!Nothing is too weird or too ordinary for Nicola Barker. I can think of few writers who can make me think of Joe Orton one minute and Saul Bellow the next.' Guardian
