ABOUT THE BOOK
Each of the stories that make up Damage represents a new take on the theme of difference and strangeness in human life. There are elements of traditional horror, fantasy and the supernatural, but also of beauty, humour, compassion and love. In ‘Homecraft’ two children learn to survive in a derelict building; A rock singer deals with her addictions in ‘Siren’; In ‘Selkie: A Scottish Idyll’, the traditional Celtic tale is given a modern twist; The title story follows an asylumseeker leading a double life; The strange rituals of a group of bird watchers are charted in ‘Boom Bird’; And in ‘Northern Light’ an Icelandic myth unravels in a contemporary setting.
Damage explores the fragility of life and love and how they can sometimes survive against the odds, despite the damage that is done to them.
