We’ve been waiting on Giselle’s first collection of short fiction for some time, noticing her stories being published in all the best places… and we’re glad to see this collection out, and to launch it, with the established writer of short fiction Alison Moore’s new collection – both from Salt Publishing.

Giselle Leeb’s short stories have appeared in Best British Short Stories, AmbitMslexiaThe Lonely CrowdLitroBlack StaticLady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, and other places, She is an assistant editor at Reckoning Journal. Giselle grew up in South Africa and lives in Nottingham. This collection moves effortlessly between the realistic and the fantastical, as their outsider characters explore what it’s like to be human in the twenty-first century.

‘Alison Moore’s Eastmouth… beautifully captures the sinister timelessness of an off-season seaside resort, twisting the everyday mundane and making it disturbing.’ —Keith BrookeThe Guardian. Brooke is right, Alison can make washing the dishes seem like the prelude to something disturbing. This is her second collection of short stories. Her novels include The Lighthouse, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
