A disenchanted wife embarks on a one-night stand... A wheelchair-bound poet comes home to roost, upsetting the balance of his carer's life A troubled mother finds solace in an unusual place... A man begins to steal office stationery for no apparent reason... The stories in Shreya Sen-Handley's Strange Stories are about everyday people whose lives take unforeseen turns. Suddenly, they find themselves drawn inexorably into encounters and situations that weren't part of their plan, but which result in the shocking revelation of buried parts of their psyches. This is a book that will have you engrossed as you try to guess what happens at the end of each story, and its characters will haunt you for a long time after you've turned the last page.
