Sawn-off Tales by David Gaffney

Book Description

David Gaffney's compact, surreal tales are filled with poignancy and wit. Each story goes off like a tiny depth charge in the mind, leaving you with the trace memory of some new urban myth - comic, absurd and disturbingly true.

All the Places I Ever Lived by David Gaffney All the Places I Ever Lived, Paperback (February 2017)

All the Places I've Ever Lived is part ghost story, part murder ballad, part crime thriller, and explores the themes of outsiders and difference, with a dark edge.

More Sawn-off Tales by David Gaffney More Sawn-off Tales, Paperback (October 2016)

In stories that are laugh-out-loud funny, cringingly weird and desperately sad, Gaffney introduces the possibility of momentary actions that change everything; a swimming man sees a hundred glass eyes at the bottom of a river; and a comedian decides to express himself through the medium of smell.

Half-Life of Songs by David Gaffney Half-Life of Songs, Paperback (November 2010)

Succinct in length and vast in imagination, Gaffney's micro stories are bizarre and witty slices of condensed reality. Frequently hilarious and often poignant, they leave an after taste that is resonant, dark and clingy. They sometimes seem to glow from the inside with their own awful secrets.

Aromabingo by David Gaffney Aromabingo, Paperback (April 2009)

Aromabingo is the much aniticipated sequel to Gaffney's highly-acclaimed 'Sawn-off Tales', offering yet more weird, edgy, ultra-short stories, together with several longer ones - the perfect opportunity to spend more time inside the baffling, hilarious and sometimes moving world David Gaffney paints for us.
