Whether it's a man with a growth on his hand, a couple trying for a baby, a woman finishing a book, a pope with penis envy, or a bullied girl, the characters caught in the slipstream world of Punch have no choice but to look again at their surroundsings and themselves. Humorous, disturbing, this debut short story collection from the author of Eva Shell shows us how strange life in the early twenty-first century is.
Punch is original and inventive. North finds oddities in the familiar and cruelties in the banal, making these meticulously-crafted stories simultaneously warm and unnerving, sincere and gutsy.
