How The Light Gets In by Clare Fisher

How The Light Gets In is the exciting new book from award winning short story writer and novelist, Clare Fisher. A book of very short stories that explores the spaces between light and dark and how we find our way from one to the other.

From buffering Skype chats and the truth about beards, to fried chicken shops and the things smartphones make you less likely to do when alone in a public place, Fisher paints a complex, funny and moving portrait of contemporary British life.

This book of fragments and vignettes is perfectly packaged to both dip into for a brief moment or immerse yourself for a whole evening. With Clare Fisher's unique voice at the helm, How The Light Gets In is able to go straight to the emotional heart of any subject.
