Synopsis

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

Of course, of everybody of whom this particular hero was suspicious, he was most suspicious of femme fatale, of this woman he was in love with. Even before he discovered she had a spell on her he was distrustful of her. He didn't want to be, but that's just how it goes.

Written by Anna Burns before she completed her dazzling Man Booker-winning novel Milkman, 'Mostly Hero' is the hilarious, hell-raising descendant of Quentin Tarantino and the Brothers Grimm. Originally self-published online, it is available here in print for the first time.

Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
