“Chloe Wilson’s stories are spooky, profound, thrilling, hilarious and unbelievably beautiful. I want to read everything she’s ever written, everything she’ll ever write” says writer, Anna Funder, of Chloe Wilson’s debut short story collection, Hold Your Fire, which is published today by Scribner in Australia.
Chloe, who won second prize in the 2018 Bristol Short Story Prize, has received a great early reception for the collection, and the acclaim looks set to grow as more readers discover her work. Award-winning author, Fiona McFarlane, comments : “The stories in Chloe Wilson’s Hold Your Fire are full of wit, intelligence, savage humour, and dark surprises”, while fellow writer, Ceridwen Dovey, says: “These stories are wonderfully strange, complex yet funny; they are otherworldly and unearthly but at the same time an expression of how we live in the world right now. Chloe Wilson is the magician who by her art brings to light all we usually prefer to keep hidden.”
A very happy publication day to Chloe and we hope Hold Your Fire continues to excite and captivate readers everywhere.
