Types of Everlasting Rest: Short Stories

By

This collection is a cornucopia of finely drawn characters in a varied landscape of situations beyond their control. From Italy and Russia, in the time of Napoleon, to the Boy Scouts in Czechoslovakia during World War II, each story unfolds with unexpected twists and turns. I Should Have Listened Harder won the Scotsman-Orange Prize, 2006. The title story, last in the collection, sums up the themes and emotions perfectly. It is often said that the short story is a specialized art form, and Clio Gray has certainly mastered the art.
