We Don't Know What We're Doing

Brand: Faber & Faber   |   Status: Hết hàng

These ten stories are grounded and utterly glorious ... they are distinct but all of a piece, delights to savour. ― Literary Review

[T]here's something radiant about the frankness of his writing. ― Independent

[Morris'] fresh, direct writing style feels brand new, slamming the reader up against the chaos of his characters' inner lives in a way that makes you exhilarated and bruised. ― Metro

We Don't Know What We're Doing is mordantly funny and achingly true. The characters are with me many months after reading. ― Marcel Theroux, Guardian

A young video shop assistant exchanges the home comforts of one mother-figure for a fleeting encounter with another; a brother and sister find themselves at the bottom of a coal mine with a Japanese tourist; a Welsh stag on a debauched weekend in Dublin confesses an unimaginable truth; and a twice-widowed pensioner tries to persuade the lovely Mrs Morgan to be his date at the town's summer festival...

Set in Caerphilly, a sleepy castle town in South Wales, Thomas Morris' debut collection reveals its treasures in unexpected ways, offering vivid and moving glimpses of the lost, lonely and bemused. By turns poignant, witty, and tender - these entertaining stories detail the lives of people who know where they are, but don't know what they're doing.

This is the work of a young writer with a startlingly fresh voice, an uncanny ear for dialogue and a broad emotional range. We Don't Know What We're Doing is a major launch for the Faber fiction list in 2015.
