‘Things I Did for Money is a collection of exciting and imaginative stories from one of our most innovative writers. This is a book for readers hungry for a highly original voice.’ — Tony Birch
A man’s fury at his neighbour is reversed by strange nightmares. A young woman with a grudge finds a discarded weapon. A hunt for sunken treasure brings two scuba divers to the brink of tragedy.
Drawing us into worlds both surreal and familiar, Things I Did for Money comprises eight stories by Meg Mundell, author of the acclaimed novel Black Glass.
By turns unsettling, wry and moving, these stories explore the shadowy side of everyday life. The diverse characters in this collection share the struggles we must all confront: coming to terms with the past; reconciling our dreams with reality; and navigating the difficult, often murky terrain of human relationships.
Richly imagined and deeply empathetic, Things I Did for Money establishes Meg Mundell at the forefront of contemporary writing.
