From the publisher

“Ominous yet deeply tender, surreal yet undeniable. I could not look away.” Saba Sams, Send Nudes

“Brilliant. A playful and witty take on our relationship with the natural world.” Irenosen Okojie, Nudibranch

The Unreliable Nature Writer is the eagerly-awaited debut collection of exhilarating, macabre and dreamy short stories from Claire Carroll. 

Shortlisted for The White Review Prize and winner of the Short Fiction Wild Writing Prize, Carroll portrays an unsettlingly hot, vaguely familiar world of life alongside new technologies and failing environments. 

Delightful to read and unsettling to imagine, these are haunting stories about love, loss and strangely-exposing housing applications
