Reviews

"Accomplished, moving and unnerving, Sweet Home is a tour de force." * Independent * "Shades of Angela Carter colour Bray's title story while Fay Weldon and Jane Gardam are godmothers to Bray's fiction, bringing gifts of satire and observation that can prick and draw blood." * Guardian * "[Bray] explores parenthood, loss, childhood and belonging with razor-sharp prose, a killer eye for stop-you-in-your-tracks detail and a real understanding of the hidden cruelties and unexpectedly sharp comforts of family life" * Jenn Ashworth, author of The Friday Gospels * "Suburbia in all its tarnished glory - Carys Bray teases at the cracks, and pulls at the loose threads dangling, in short stories that are funny sad and achingly true" * Rob Shearman *
