Mezzanine and Other StoreyseBook - 2014
Mezzanine and Other Storeys is a collection of short stories for charity, written by established and emerging authors from four continents, all of whom have donated their time and their work to help the cause. Among them are writers who have won awards for fiction, poetry, screenwriting, music, and journalism, including the late, great Graham Joyce. The collection embraces humor, history and heartbreak weaving through ancient kingdoms and humanitarian work in Africa; short-lived romances played out in a Nottinghamshire fairground and World War II Coventry; musical cameos from the North Carolina country scene, from a 1980s Indie darling adrift in the south of Ireland, and from Geordie folk-rockers Lindisfarne. Narrators stepping up to the microphone include a dog with an eye for philosophy, and several voices whose owners' lives have been changed by love and loss, by relocating and music-making, or by foodstuffs - from bitter apples to smooth milk chocolate. We recommend reading Mezzanine and Other Storeys in a quiet place, preferably one with a thought-provoking view.
