From high, good humour to deep pathos, this book contains the lot! Each section is written on a subject given to the authors by the elected chairman of the group and is then approached by the individual authors. Each piece is limited to one thousand words or less, but, as this book will demonstrate, much can be said in a few words.
In ' In an imaginary childhood' June Rendle's description of Elizabeth Bennet's twelfth birthday celebrations, captures the writing of Jane Austen, whilst Pamela Barnett has managed to give us a heartfelt insight of a mother's thoughts as she writes a letter to her son, not to be read until twenty years have passed.
As for drama; Miles Rendle's 'Stopped in it's tracks' deals with an event which had one of the twentieth century's greatest effects on history. Martin Delany not only creates tense drama but tackles one of the unfortunate and highly emotional situations within our society today.
Lynn David Rowlands manages to bring Chaos and hysterical and irreverent humour to every situation, whilst Barbara Hiom's creative, imaginative take on what happens to the good when they die is cleverly crafted in the very minimum number of words.
