Dinner Time

Holly Howitt-Dring (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    Holly Howitt’s microfictions confront the reader with an unsafe world on the edge of implosion or disintegration, a world where the contours are forever folding in upon themselves. The tour de force of the collection is undoubtedly ‘Dinner Time’, a sequence describing, in powerfully surreal imagery, the extremities of lust, longing and cruelty, between a man, a woman (and a dog), that is both awful and intoxicating in its attention to detail and its evocation of an obsessed state of mind. Nothing is quite what it seems here; a quality which intrigues the reader, inciting one to turn the page and discover where we are going next. The tales are gripping, the writing is intelligent, measured, funny, frequently delicious.
