THE DANGEROUS EDGE OF THINGS
‘Our interest’s on the dangerous edge of things. The honest thief, the tender murderer, the superstitious atheist.’
Robert Browning

The characters that inhabit Freya McClements’ debut collection of short stories, The Dangerous Edge Of Things, are each trying to make their way in a world in which love or lust has pushed them to the very edge of society – and sometimes beyond. From the mother engaged in an illicit affair to the husband who harbours a dark secret, or the exotic new boyfriend who appears too good to be true, each must adjust to the new reality – or face the consequences.
Set in Derry, Dublin, London and Oxford, these stories are about love in its many forms.

‘One of our most exciting new voices in literary fiction. These stories will stay with you, haunt you, comfort you… leave you wanting more.’
Felicity McCall
