Congratulations to Rose McDonagh who has been signed by literary agent, Kate Evans at the Peters, Fraser and Dunlop agency.
And in more exciting news, Rose’s short story collection, The Dog Husband will be published by Reflex Press next year. The book is described on Reflex’s website as “…a collection of short, literary fiction themed around different types of belief and linked together by animal imagery. On a Scottish island, a woman believes that her dead husband has come back to her as a dog. In the suburbs of a city, a judge seems to be haunted by a man he has recently sent to prison. On a caravan site, a group of strangers prepare for the end of the world.
“These stories explore the uncanny and the mysterious in everyday settings. Moving from Scottish towns and cities to the remote highlands, creating a strong sense of place, The Dog Husband uncovers questions of faith and madness, desire and our ability to fool ourselves.”
It’s great to see Rose’s talents being recognised and we are really looking forward to the publication of The Dog Husband.
