Publisher's Summary

‘Stories are like Russian dolls; open them up, and in each one you’ll find another story.’
Conjured from a wickedly imaginative pen, here is a new collection of short stories that showcases Joanne Harris’s exceptional storytelling art. Sensuous, wicked, mischievous, uproarious and wry, here are tales that combine the everyday with the unexpected; wild fantasy with bittersweet reality. From the house where it is Christmas all year round, to a ghost who lives on a Twitter timeline; from the Congo where a young girl braves the raging rapids to earn a crust of bread, to Norse gods battling for survival in Manhattan; and a new-born baby created with sugar, spice, and lashings of cake, these stories will ensnare and delight you with their variety and inventiveness.

A Cat, A Hat, and a Piece of String

Joanne Harris' short story writing never fails to disappoint. This collection is full of thought-provoking, engaging, reflective, heart-breaking and amusing stories that introduce new characters and bring back some of (my) favourites from Harris' previous writing. An excellent collection.
