A teenage girl desperate for reconciliation with her absent father; a woman manipulated into thinking she is insane; a dystopian future where unhealthiness is punishable by death; the unrequited love of a shop assistant; an intimate journey into London’s kaleidoscope heart; the wedding dream of a dying solider far from home.
No Way Home is a new collection of thought-provoking, poignant and thrilling stories by Andrew Davenport, featuring Screen Grab, Deathcast, Stations of the Soul and three other brand-new stories.
Andrew Davenport is an Anglo-Irish author.
He sometimes lives in the countryside, far away from urban distraction, but mostly he lives in the city. He enjoys long walks, typewriters and strong black coffee.
The ramblings of a man who thinks he’s seen an angel. A drunken commentary on a night out on the town. A goddess snatching a holidaymaker down to the underworld. A desperate husband seeking help for his dying wife. A man stuck down a manhole after his stag do. The tell-all story of the ups and downs of a global pop band. An appeal for help to His Satanic Majesty.
These are just a few of the eclectic cast of characters and diverse situations assembled by Andrew Davenport as he explores the meaning of life in the modern world and the frailties that we all have to face, all woven through with finely drawn observations and a strong sense of the absurd.
The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
