Description:
Carys Davies' short story collections Some New Ambush and The Redemption of Galen Pike (winner of the 2015 Frank O'Connor Award), now published in a single volume. In a remote Australian settlement a young wife with an untellable secret reluctantly invites her neighbour into her home. On a red island in a rose-coloured sea, russet-haired women dream of a fisherman with hair black as night. A Quaker spinster offers companionship to a condemned man in a Colorado jail.

Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins visit a women's asylum, and the course of literary history is changed forever. Spare, precise and charged with wit, these award-winning stories are set in places near, far and imaginary. Carys Davies takes us to a world where the lines between reality and fantasy, tragedy and comedy, madness and sanity begin to dissolve. Combining two collections-Some New Ambush and Frank O'Connor Award-winner The Redemption of Galen Pike-The Travellers and Other Stories is a work of exceptional talent and original vision.
