Red Room Short Fiction
Short Stories Inspired by the Brontes
In this collection, twelve of Britain’s most celebrated writers have produced short fictions that interact, respond and play with the legacy of the Bronte Sisters. These are stunning and elemental tales, from authors who between them have won prizes such as the Macmillan/PEN Prize, the BBC National Short Story Award, the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Prize and the V.S. Pritchett Prize.
The featured writers include:
Elizabeth Baines | Bill Broady | David Constantine | Carys Davies | Sarah Dobbs | Vanessa Gebbie | Tania Hershman | Zoë King | Rowena Macdonald | Alison Moore | David Rose | Felicity Skelton
“Ranging from haunting to humorous, from formally inventive to jubilantly fantastical and from 19th to 21st centuries, there is a story here for every taste and for every Bronte lover.”
