Omschrijving

Trying To Be So Quiet & Other Stories presents three stories about love, loss and the horror that comes when grief removes our reason for living from the world.

In 'The Second Wish', a son coping with the sudden death of his parents returns to his childhood home only to find that, despite everything being familiar, things inside seem increasingly unreal.

In 'Damage' a grieving lover loses all sensation of pain as she tries to make sense of her enduring grief.

The title story is a novella telling of a husband's struggle with the reality of his wife's death as he remembers their life together. Although haunted, he struggles to find the ghosts that assail him as meaningful as the bleak fact that he is now alone. But that doesn't stop him seeing them...

"A hint of Robert Aickman in the slow accretion of off-kilter detail and shades of Christopher Priest [and] the metafictional conceits of Jorge Luis Borges." - The Guardian

"A writer with an incredible deftness of touch. Note perfect grasp of character, the ability to render the mundane strange with a turn of phrase, deeply literate yet not an ounce of pretension, Everington is a quiet but potent voice in horror fiction." - Ginger Nuts Of Horror

"A small, quiet, poignant novella about grief and significance. No noise, no fuss, just good, honest writing about the things that matter." - Gary McMahon
