extraordinarily powerful -- VS Pritchett Prize judges Jane Gardam, Penelope Lively and Jacob Ross on The Redemption of Galen Pike A writer willing to tackle the hardest of all fictional forms - the short story. This is a region in which so many fail...Carys understands the attention and respect that must be paid to the form...she can keep her literary powder dry, so to speak, until the end of a story, and she can do what it is essential to do in this form, create a micro-world, which has reverberations beyond its size and scope, which is metaphysical. -- Sarah Hall This story of brutal murder and rough justice in the American Wild West carried a real punch. As if Mark Twain and Annie Proulx had sat down at a desk together. But an original voice too. I shall be looking out for more. -- Piers Plowright
