Description - The Separate Heart by Simon Robson

If there is a thread running through Simon Robson s brilliant collection of stories it is the notion of separateness of adults from each other, of children from adult knowledge, of adult consciousness from the vividness of childhood. His protagonists are often unlikely a cat, a man, met in a bar, who drove a chariot in Ben Hur, a girl who gets up very early but these stories are satisfyingly long and devoid of modernist trickery; rather they are wise, funny, beautifully observed and somehow utterly true.
