'Judith was undressing on Friday night in front of her bedroom mirror when she realized - with a shock that momentarily paralyzed her - that she had become invisible..."
Bikers partying in a remote mountain pub; an Englishman in search of mustard in a quiet Welsh village; a housewife whose ordinary life suddenly turns very strange indeed - Catherine Merriman's stories take everyday reality and give it a twist and a spin, transforming it into something bright, with a definite edge.
In her second collection of short stories, following the success of Silly Mothers, she employs her considerable skill in hinting at the potential for the extraordinary in our lives - a darker, sometimes tragic, sometimes sordid side, with wicked humour and optimism.
' Catherine merriman's characters live for us through her skill and sympathy...her stories are for everyone, female or (especially) male.' - Iron magazine
