*THIS TITLE WILL BE RELEASED ON 17TH AUGUST*
The new collection from a literary star – five achingly tender, innovative and dazzling stories of (dis)connection. From a child attending his first football match, buoyed by secret magic, and a wincingly humane portrait of adolescence, to the perplexity of grief and loss through the eyes of a seahorse, Thomas Morris seeks to find grace, hope and benevolence in the churning tumult of self-discovery. Philosophically acute.
Wincingly humane. Strikingly original. This outstanding suite of stories is bursting with a bracing emotional depth.
Open Up cracks the heart as it expands the short story form.
