Rachel Trezise's collection of short stories "Fresh Apples" is refreshing, brutally honest and very relevant in today's society.The stories change between being so touching and really getting to you, and then leaving you cold and indifferent.
Personally I preferred her semi autobiography "In and Out of the Goldfish Bowl", as it was more detailed and you really got to know the characters involved. However, "Fresh Apples" is still a great read, though I did feel that I had a hard time connecting with any of the characters in the short stories, though that might also have a lot to do with the fact, that I'm from a completely different social setting than the working class, Welsh environment filled with alcohol and drugs that Rachel Trezise is writing about.
Rachel Trezise is such a young writer, but she's got an amazing talent and a very unique way of writing and I would definitely recommend her work.
