Short & Sweet - 5 Brilliant Stories!
Each story is a deserved winner, and 5 very varied scenarios reflecting with themes such as lost love, amnesia, aloneness, madness, justice, betrayal and solidarity (pity there are only 5 stories in all)!
Overall, the collection is less than 2 hrs listening time, and at the end I was left wanting more. My only slight complaint is that on my iPhone, each story is just an anonymous chapter.
I don't know who won, but for me 'My Daughter, the Racist' is the most thought provoking and contemporary account I have heard or read in a long time. It made me weep for the human condition.
