Tales of Ordinary Sadness

By Neil Randall


Publication Date: PB August 9, 2016

With Randall, the jury is still out. Tales of his own life are as strange as the very stories he writes. In a sense, Randall is a legend in his own front room, a holy drinker…tender, belligerent, a contradiction…these fifteen exceptional, highly original short stories come pounding out of a violent, unique, depraved mind…you cannot read tales of magic suits, talking dogs and deformed hands and ever come away the same again.

Product Description

With Randall, the jury is still out. Tales of his own life are as strange as the very stories he writes. In a sense, Randall is a legend in his own front room, a holy drinker…tender, belligerent, a contradiction…these fifteen exceptional, highly original short stories come pounding out of a violent, unique, depraved mind…you cannot read tales of magic suits, talking dogs and deformed hands and ever come away the same again.

Randall…’is an intriguing writer who kept me entranced from start to finish. His writing style is bold, intense, disturbing, thought provoking, and very descriptive, with strong imagery.’                                                               – Cindy Taylor, AllBooks Review

‘Tales of Ordinary Sadness’ is a fantastic collection of stories that will shock, challenge and delight. The writing is so perceptive it’s almost unnerving. 5 out of 5 stars from me
– Rowena Wiseman, Author of The Replacement Wife, (HarperCollins

About The Author

Author

Novelist, short story writer and poet, Neil Randall was born in Norfolk, England in 1975. His literary life, however, began during a trip to St. Petersburg in the mid-nineties. The richness of this experience aroused a great passion for Russian literature and culture, providing the inspiration for his novels. While influenced by classic authors such as Gogol, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Chekhov, Randall is also a big admirer of contemporary writers such as Andrey Kurkov and Olga Grushin, especially Death and the Penguin and The Dream Life of Sukhanov.
