'Ten years after the much-acclaimed Swallow the Air, Tara June Winch returns with an extraordinary new collection of stories'

'A single mother resorts to extreme measures to protect her young son. A Nigerian student undertakes a United Nations internship in the hope of a better future. A recently divorced man starts a running group with members of an online forum for recovering addicts. '

'Ranging from New York to Istanbul, from Pakistan to Australia, these unforgettable stories chart the distances in their characters’ lives – whether they have grown apart from the ones they love, been displaced from their homeland, or are struggling to reconcile their dreams with reality. A collection of prodigious depth and variety, After the Carnage marks the impressive evolution of one of our finest young writers.' (Source: Publisher's website)

'It's difficult to believe it has been 10 years since Tara June Winch's astonishing debut Swallow the Air. Winch's startling voice and ability to punctuate her world with arresting images resulted in a deluge of accolades. Notably, she received the Rolex Protege and Artist Mentorship, pairing her with Wole Soyinka, the Nigerian Nobel Laureate in literature. Since then, Winch has been at work on a novel, with her next instalment eagerly anticipated. But first she has delivered this short story collection. ...'
