       Gondwanaland: stories by Brenda Ray 

***Brenda Ray will be reading extracts from 'Gondwanaland' at Derby Central Library on Monday 16th September

12.10 till 1.00 as part of their Listen While You Lunch programme. (free entry, all welcome)***

Three things

     that don’t exist: 


    a non-stick pan
    a non-iron shirt

It’s not only children who need an imaginary land into which they can withdraw. Adults need this just as often...

In this latest collection by Brenda Ray, men and women are seeking love, vengeance, daydreams, answers, a job. Or maybe, like the young mother in Gondwanaland, and the retired lady who sabotages her neighbour’s Jacuzzi, just a bit of peace and quiet.

Brenda Ray

"It takes stamina to write a novel, but control to write a short story."

Their stories are told with wit, humour, a touch of surrealism and the love of language and landscape that characterised her first book, The Siren of Salamanca. As Brenda Ray says, "a short story can be a whole novel in miniature, a slice of life that covers a single hour, or it can simply say, “Come with me...”

So come with Brenda, in her new collection of stories, to the windswept east coast in the 1860s, where a young couple are on the run. To the present day and the mysterious white house that is sometimes there and sometimes not. From suburban England to the mountains of Andalucía. And from the Basque country to a Derbyshire pit village shortly before the Second World War, and way before then, to Gondwanaland...
