From the author of Mister Pip , winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book and finalist for the Man Booker Prize, comes a collection written with Lloyd Jones's trademark precision and imaginative reach.
nbsp;
A boy watches his mother hooked and reeled ashore by a fisherman. A couple give up their seats on a bus for lovers soon to be parted. A husband enters a world imagined by his wife and pretends to be the man she loves. Lloyd Jones's The Man in the Shed is a haunting collection of stories about family and longing. These extraordinary tales take conventional family life and tilt it sideways, delivering a memorable blend of the suburban and the surreal.
