An excellent collection if a little odd and tangram-like due to the non theme of it. I particularly loved the stories of Jack Kirne, Khalid Warsame, Laura Elvery and Julie Koh.

An enjoyable read! Stories were short but captivating and had me hooked on the plot and characters until even after I turned the very last page. A collection of shorts for anyone who are looking to read stories that are unique, commentary, looking to fill up the time whilst travelling on public transport, in a waiting room or would just like to hit off another book for their summer reading list! Recommended!
