When the red man turns to green, walk yourself into a world where killing a spider triggers vivid flashbacks; where unrequited love is never forgotten; where filming for YouTube leads to more than mere voyeurism; where a shopping trip to Asda is a form of counselling; where the sheep are very often blue; and where tea is the answer. In this enigmatic debut collection, Dickson Telfer plunges his characters into profound and occasionally unsettling situations and watches them stew, fumble, thrive and flourish. Quirky, funny and alternative, his observations on everyday life make this collection eminently enjoyable.
“Guaranteed to challenge your perceptions, pre-conceived or otherwise, Telfer’s whacky take on life will never leave you feeling indifferent.” Neal Sillars, author of A Conspiracy of Ravens and If You Fly with the Crows.
