Coming June 2018
Fractured families, domestic claustrophobia, and the unseen menace of the everyday. Alison Moore’s debut collection of short fiction shares the same emotional tension and tightly controlled prose that garnered her first novel, The Lighthouse, a spot on the Man Booker shortlist. From flash fictions to the novella, insightful realism to chilling gothic horror, Moore’s talents are on full display here.
Praise for Alison Moore
“Just as uncompromising and unsettling as The Lighthouse.”—The Guardian
“Beautifully crafted, rendered in a lean, pared-down style that accentuates the stark content.” —Metro
“The tales collected in The Pre-War House… pick at psychological scabs in a register both wistful and brutal.” —The Times Literary Supplement
