From the publisher

A man jumps, the platform empties, then the stories begin. Filled with tales of tragedy, love, hope and frustration, Malachi McIntosh’s debut collection of short stories offers surreal and satirical accounts of the many perils of contemporary life.

‘But she didn’t see. She stands out in the street as it was, in the city as it was.

She was right next to him, standing there right next to him, but she didn’t see.

Matthew texts her as she walks nowhere,rings her when the time for them to meet comes and goes and she’s done three laps of an anonymous block and she answers finally and tells him A man He jumped And I saw it, even though she didn’t see.

She didn’t see.’
