Graham Mort’s collection of short stories ‘Touch’ short-listed for the Edge Hill Prize


Graham Mort’s collection of short stories Touch has been short-listed for the Edge Hill University short story prize 2011.

Touch includes the Bridport prize winning story ‘The Prince’, which was described by novelist Tracy Chevalier as “..the writing is word perfect..”.

From a young child adrift on an ice-filled lake to an ageing farmer facing life alone, the twenty-one stories display a deep sensitivity to both the natural world and to human relationships. In skilfully crafted prose, vivid with detail, Mort examines the strength and fragility of life and the ties that hold us within it.
