Des Lewis has done another of his wonderful real-time reviews of Black Static. You can read the whole thing by clicking here. This is what he said about my story ‘The Hutch’:
“This is almost a Robbe-Grillet type anti-novel short story… In such a relatively short space, the description of the hutch nevertheless seems slow motion, attritionally so. It is like a Duchamp ready-made – to enclose the ‘step’ relationships of families these days, rent not ownership. Including the final image of womanly ‘confinement’ and the crude ‘hutch’ enclosure. A very effective story where the real action is under the surface, unseen”
Makes me happy.
