"Christopher Robin is Cold" is great. Brilliant title. Must have been a genius who came up with it. (Ahem.)
Catherine Browne did a fine job! I hope she continues editing, and does so with the great crowd from Route.
An excellent, well-selected collection of varied and refreshing pieces - which remain surprisingly life-affirming despite the 80's cynicism!
Lou Perez forever!
this book is great!

What a nice discovery this book! Thanks so much ;)
Gareth Storey is the stand out author here. Great book.
Really evocative of a generation. Some interesting new authors. I was particularly intrigued and moved reading the story by Chelsey flood.
Paints a great picture
Takes me back!
A very moving set of pieces
This is a great book. I also like the Sally Jenkinson piece best. Since it feels like we're living in the 80's again, this is a very timely collection!
A great set of stories, all really fresh and original.
Love it!!!
i particularly like the piece by Sally Jenkinson.
Amazing book!
i loved the short story in this book by the author Gareth Storey, it was by far the best one i read
