London Road: Linked Stories by Tessa Smith McGovern

Winner of the Gold Medal in the 2012 eLit Awards in the Short Story Collection category!

“…reminiscent of the writer who appears in one of the stories: the great Katherine Mansfield.”
Cynthia Rogerson, winner, V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize for a Short Story, 2008, UK.

On the morning of her release from prison, the hottest day on record in England, Janice Bailey makes her way to a boarding house in London, and discovers a bizarre new world.

Part memoir, part fiction, this moving, uplifting collection of seven linked short stories begins with ‘When Janice Bailey Walked’, an award-winning story first published in the Connecticut Review. It continues with six more realistic yet comforting stories, as told by the residents of Number 17, London Road, thus illuminating a little-known side of the most beautiful city in Europe.

“A very impressive collection of first-rate stories.” Betty Kelly Sargent, former Editor-in-Chief, William Morrow.

Moving, funny and beautifully-written, eChook’s first collection of stories by multiple authors, MEMOIR, VOL. 1, features a range of voices – twelve women and one man – compelling stories that will delight and entertain.

Like a tasting menu of autobiographical delights, the stories include a mischievous tale of a girl who shouldn’t play with matches, a mother and daughter who settle their differences with a prom dress and a kugel, a one-night stand that takes an unexpected turn, the unforeseen powers of a crossword puzzle, a wayward father’s alternate reality, and two tales about those mysterious creatures known as writers.

Read an EXCERPT of each story.
