Shouting Through Glass

— BROADCAST ON BBC RADIO 4 —

— COMMONWEALTH BROADCASTING ASSOCIATION PRIZEWINNER —

In twelve stories – sometimes funny, sometimes sad — Shouting Through Glass portrays the inner lives of men and women, the young and the old. The characters find themselves caught within the limits of their own identities and the lessons they have learned from past experience. Reaching out to connect with others is a dangerous business – one that may or may not be rewarded with a glimpse of real love.

‘She creates convincing characters with great economy, affection and a wry humour. She brings a light touch to her stories which nonetheless reveal the poignancy and profound emotions running beneath the idiosyncrasies and coping mechanisms of daily life: small moments give away a depth of feeling that we recognise from our own all-too-flawed attempts to deal with the big issues of love and loss, parenthood and age.’
— Sara Davies, BBC

‘… beautifully written; an important subject, very delicately handled.’
