Read full description of the books Congregation of Innocents: Five Curious Tales:A food bank in small-town America. A sinister conversation en route to a festival. A disorientating winter shopping trip to New York. Graphic memories of a peculiar childhood illness. An afternoon meeting between two women who share their secrets in an isolated desert.
These are five curious tales of the everyday quietly unravelling into mystery, of psychosis lurking just beneath the surface, of spectres sighted in the daylight.
Containing original fiction from Jenn Ashworth, Tom Fletcher, Richard Hirst and Emma Jane Unsworth, a graphic short story from Ian Williams and artwork and illustration from Beth Ward, Congregation of Innocents: Five Curious Tales is a limited edition and print-only collection of short fiction and original artwork which pays tribute to the work of the American writer Shirley Jackson on the fiftieth anniversary of her death.
The winter may be drawing near but within the Congregation of Innocents the sun is high and the shadows at their darkest.
