From the publisher
The new collection from a literary star – five achingly tender, innovative and dazzling stories of (dis)connection.
Everything felt familiar and nostalgic. It was the joy and blood-thrill of being understood, of being ready to give himself entirely to another.
From a child attending his first football match, buoyed by secret magic, and a wincingly humane portrait of adolescence, to the perplexity of grief and loss through the eyes of a seahorse, Thomas Morris seeks to find grace, hope and benevolence in the churning tumult of self-discovery.
Philosophically acute and strikingly original, this outstanding suite of stories is bursting with a bracing emotional depth. Open Up cracks the heart as it expands the short story form.
Praise for We Don’t Know What We’re Doing:
‘Heart-hurtingly acute, laugh-out-loud funny, and one of the most satisfying collections I’ve read for years.’ Ali Smith, Guardian ‘Books of the Year’
‘Masterly. . . marvellous grace and wit.’ Phillip Hensher
‘That tonic gift, the sense of truth – the sense of transparency that permits us to see imaginary lives more clearly than we see our own’. The tonic comes in large doses in Thomas Morris’s debut short-story collection.’ Irish Times
‘Morris’s fresh, direct writing style feels brand new.’ Metro
