Staff Reviews


Walsh shows off her brilliance in these brief, witty stories that are as clever as they are touching. Joanna Walsh been one of my favorite writers since her previous book, Vertigo, and Worlds from the Word's End is even better. It's the perfect book for anyone who loves great puns and brilliant explorations of literature's possibilities.

— From Adam F. Staff Picks

Description


"Joanna Walsh is fast becoming one of our most important writers." --Deborah Levy

This collection cements Joanna Walsh's reputation as one of the sharpest writers of this century. Wearing her learning lightly, Walsh's stories make us see the world afresh, from a freewheeling story on cycling (and Freud), to a country in which words themselves fall out of fashion--something that will never happen wherever Walsh is read.

Joanna Walsh is the author of Hotel and Vertigo. She also writes literary criticism, edits at 3: AM and Catapult, and founded @read_women. She lives in Oxford, UK.
