              Stuart Evers, the author of the critically acclaimed, prize-winning collection Ten Stories About Smoking returns with twelve unforgettable stories of parental love and parental mistakes. Set in the past, present and future, these short stories are unified by their compassion, ani...mated by the unsaid, and distinguished by how beautifully they extract the luminous from the ordinary. Your Father Sends His Love by Stuart Evers is a book of powerful emotion: of vulnerability, duty, betrayal, loss, anger, fear and joy. While its characters often feel more than they can express, they are in the hands of a masterful story teller, who gives time to what might otherwise be incidental, and who dignifies the things that might otherwise pass us by.

              In the late 1950s, during his National Service, Drummond meets the two people who will change his life: Carter, a rich, educated young man sent down from Oxford; and Gwen, a barmaid with whom he feels an instant connection. His feelings for both will be tested at a military base ...called Doom Town - a training area where servicemen prepare for the aftermath of an Atomic Strike. It is an experience that will colour the rest of his - and his family's - life. Told from the perspectives of Drum and Gwen, and later their children Nathan and Anneka, The Blind Light moves from the Fifties through to present day, taking in the global and local events that will shape and define them all. From the Cuban Missile Crisis to the War on Terror, from the Dagenham strikes to Foot and Mouth, from Skiffle to Rave, we see a family come together, driven apart, fracture and reform - as the pressure of the past is brought, sometimes violently, to bear on the present. The Blind Light will remind you how complicated human history is - and how hard it is to do the right thing for the right reasons.

              What makes for a good short story? Being short, you might think the storys structure would yield an answer to this question more readily than, say, the novel.
