Vintage Minis bring you the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human – from birth to death and everything in between
'A man is trapped in a hot flat above the shipyard, caring for a wife who will live out her days in this bed, watching this television. Twin sisters are separated at seven weeks and know nothing of one another, only an absence that walks beside them always on the road. A girl is raped by her mother’s boyfriend. A child dies and doesn’t die. Family, that slippery word, a star to every wandering bark, and everyone sailing under a different sky'
Mark Haddon brings his playful, polyphonic imagination to bear on that crucible that built us, for better or worse: family
Selected from The Pier Falls, The Red House and A Spot of Bother.
