The Bound Man, and Other Stories149
The Bound Man is storytelling for our times. Here we find works of fiction where a present darkness and obscurity usher extraordinary performances into the light of day: a man bound hand and foot; a death told in reverse; a speech under the gallows. Written with disarming simplicity, this collection of stories puts language to the test.

'I remember reading The Bound Man many years ago. The story has never left me. Reading it now, along with the other stories, I am again caught in what feels like the confusion of shock, where time is fluid and the material world is an uncertain, unstable place, full of fragile hope and loss. I experience the shifts and startling turns in these stories, and their imagery, as unexpected blows to the heart.' Jayne Parker
