One long hot summer Theresa drowns a wasps nest, and whilst digging amongst the tiny corpses in Mr Mordecai's back garden makes a much more sinister discovery. A young mother, Lella, is terrified by a sudden spate of disappearing new-borns, and tries desperately to protect her baby by never letting her out of her sight. A couple who meet for the first time at a party leave together drunk, and it becomes apparent that their care-free encounter is not as untainted as it first appears. And over a Coca Cola in a dinner outside an Andalucian village, a young girl hears from a stranger the worst thing a mother can do. The characters in Clare Wigfall's stories are all searching for something missing, something absent. As they live their seemingly ordinary lives, the dark undercurrent of life, with all its complications and imperfections, gradually becomes apparent. Extraordinarily compelling, incredibly skilled and pitch perfect in tone, these stories reveal Clare Wigfall to be a debut writer of enormous talent.
