Powerful and beautifully observed, 'The Woman Under the Ground' is novelist Megan Taylor's first collection of short stories. The writing is brooding and mysterious with finely drawn characters, so often the victims of absence and loss: a child taken to a neglected museum by her forsaken father; a woman revisiting the scene of an ended affair; a couple taking a road trip to try to reconcile the death of their daughter...

From dark adult secrets to night visitors to the dangerous passions of small girls, these stories explore fractured relationships and moments of self revelation with an uncanny honesty and insight.

Each story is introduced with an original line drawing by artist Nikki Pinder, who also designed the outstanding cover.

A man's body is washed up on the beach of a seaside resort. There is no clue to his identity, just a room key for the Esplanade Hotel in his pocket. But Alex, who finds the body, knows who he is, and his connection with the women who would know him too, if they were asked: Megan, and Lynn

Beyond the beach, in a room above a pub, Megan is waiting for her lover. Like so much of her life: child, home, family, he has gone missing.

Years later, and far from The Esplanade where she grew up, Lynn receives a key in the post. She too has a painful past to revisit, and, like Megan, she must remember how it involves the man on the beach, and the events of a fateful night at The Esplanade.

The Esplanade is about loss of voice and identity, about the relationship between the past and the future, and the dislocation of the self that occurs when we distance ourselves from our experience.

The second novel by Nottingham writer NIGEL PICKARD

This story of a teacher in one of our toughest comprehensives is about far more than education, as the parallel narratives of Harry, the teacher, and Lewis, an excluded student on his final last chance, reveal.

Attention Deficit is fast-paced, provocative, and, at times, very funny.
