Happy publication day to Ruth Brandt and her new short story collection, No One Has Any Intention of Building a Wall, published by Fly On The Wall Press.
The collection takes its title from Ruth’s short story which was shortlisted for the 2011 Bristol Short Story Prize.
From Fly On The Wall’s website: “Ruth Brandt’s debut short story collection tackles stubborn, impulsive and adrenaline-seeking human nature. From the formation of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the early life of Turing, to modern day families, Brandt lays bare the social systems and customs we live by.
“To read and recognise Brandt’s characters, is to recognise humans are social chameleons – an acknowledgement that through pain, loss and memories of war, we can choose to love and live with abandon.”
Big congratulations to Ruth. It’s great to see her writing finding more readers
