Book fairies in London UK were delighted to help get the word out about the release of Naomi Ishiguro’s debut – in the only way they know how!
It was a beautiful, crisp spring day with lots of sun and the fairies found some incredible spots in central London at which to hide copies!
About Escape Routes:
Neil Gaiman has described this book as “Stories that start like delicate webs and finish like unbreakable wire traps” and you can read the full blurb below.
A space-obsessed child conjures up a vortex in his mother’s airing cupboard. A musician finds her friendship with a flock of birds opens up unexpected possibilities. A rat catcher, summoned to a decaying royal palace, is plunged into a battle for the throne of a ruined kingdom. Two newlyweds find themselves inhibited by the arrival in their lives of an outsized and watchful stuffed bear.
Whether snared in traps artfully laid for them, or those of their own making, the characters in Naomi Ishiguro’s delightfully speculative debut collection yearn for freedom and flight, and find their worlds transformed beyond their wildest imaginings.
