    Power stances in loo cubicles; heartfelt letters from a stranger's parents; clairvoyant coffee shop customers; awkward post-threesome encounters...

    In this collection of short stories, Canada-based Micaela Maftei and UK-based Laura Tansley collaborate transatlantically to craft a single, blended voice; both in form and content, their stories consider place, displacement and the spaces where the two overlap. With insight and humour the authors map the ongoing search for selfhood across various stages and settings of women's lives, magnifying the mundane to remind us that life is made up of the tiny details we often overlook. The Reach of a Root speaks to life's anxieties, triumphs and trials, fusing Colin Barrett's exploration of place and identity, the dark humour of Amy Hempel and the physicality of Joyce Carol Oates.
