    Southerly

    £9.99
    Consiglio presents a universe of seemingly unrelated tales, linked perhaps by a certain rhythm in the prose or by subtle dimensions of violence and perversion. As reflections on the uncontrollable nature of life, as depictions of how the most benign detail can itself become a threat, these stories do not offer neat endings.

    Trout, Belly Up

    £8.99
    The peace and violence of Guatemala is ever-present in the background in these tales. We follow Henrik, a good man struck time and again by misfortune, as he confronts different diatribes posed by the crude realities of farming life. Through his journey we meet merciless businessmen, drug dealers and fallen angels, all wanting a piece of their pie.

    An Orphan World

    £9.99
    An Orphan World is about poverty, and the resourceful ways in which people confront poverty. At the same time, it is a reflection about the body as a space of pleasure and violence. Perhaps above all else, An Orphan World is a brutally honest love letter between a father and son.
