Short stories and poems of identity and hope

Fiona Linday offers us an insightful collection of her short stories and poems – some fact, some fiction, but all powerful narratives of the world we live in. Exploring different cultures, different generations, and highlighting inequality, injustice and pain, Fiona nonetheless manages to steer us all in the direction of hope, purpose and life.

…stories that have to be told.

[These are] stories that have to be told. [Fiona tells] them in such a way that they reach out to a young audience. That is [her] talent. We have to take the knocks and rejections. [Fiona has] successes so that’s encouraging.
