Kin brings together some of the sharpest new literary talent, from the assured prose of Diana Evans and Donna Daley-Clarke to the electric energy of Shiromi Pinto and Gemma Weekes. The stories in Kin are populated by a fascinating cast of characters, sometimes bizarre, always intriguing: these are stories about mothers, sisters, lovers, best friends and brides to-be.
'A potent mix of tales, from the spiky, fiesty staccato of Gemma Weekes and the dreamy lyricism of Francesca Beard, to the bubbling humour of Saradha Soobrayen and the harsh, iron-tinged prose of Shiromi Pinto.' Metro London
'Flavoursome, gutsy and poignant...Kin introduces some wonderfully adventurous new writing'
The launch of the book at Foyles.
Kin was developed into a nationwide live literature tour by events producer renaissance one. The tour was funded by ACE and broadened the book's scope by including additional writers and spoken word performers. I was a featured writer on the Kin tour which took place at a variety of venues including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Barbican.
