Meet Drew Lord Haig, called upon to sing the obscure hit from his youth at a paramilitary event. Or Max, who recalls an eventful journey to a Christian film festival. Meet Mrs Dallesandro, in the tanning salon on her wedding anniversary dreaming of a teenage sexual experience.

And Sonya, who scours the streets of Belfast for the missing posters of her dead son. In Dance Move, the new collection of stories from Wendy Erskine, we meet characters who are looking to wrest control of their lives, only to find themselves defined by the moment in their past that marked them. In these stories – as in real life – the funny, the tender and the devastating go hand in hand.

Full of warmth, the familiar and the strange, they are about what it means to live in the world, how far you can end up from where you came from, and what it means to look back.

    I loved Wendy’s first collection of short stories from a couple of years back, ‘Sweet Home’s, so was eagerly awaiting Dance Move. And it’s every bit as good, if not better, than that first collection. Wendy is such a good writer, and maybe the best short story writer around at the moment. Eleven stories, all set in Northern Ireland, that feature ordinary people, and their emotions. Highlights for me were His Mother, and Memento Mori, but all were great. A superb collection.
