The Book of Bristol
A City in Short Fiction
Book type: Anthology
Published: 13 Oct 2022
A city much celebrated for its culture of resistance and community, Bristol has fostered a progressive attitude amongst its people. Its voice is loud and singular. But since the regeneration of the harbourside and years of private development in the centre, it’s also a divided city, with a fifth of its children being reported as living in low-income families.
From the elusive angel who turns up at a stagnant café along the Malago River, to the witch trying to expel a spirit from her granddaughter at their home on Dundry Hill, the stories gathered in this anthology lean into the understated magic of Bristol and maintain an air of mystery that will leave readers wondering who exactly makes up this city – and how they stay so powerful.
