Hell & Other Novels

By Beverley Daurio

Behind our everyday, apparently rational preoccupations lie the traces of a longing for sanctity and redemption. In these haunting, often chilling short stories, Beverley Daurio maps the sub-atomic space of contemporary alienation: a woman celebrates her divorce; a photographer trying to stay off drugs visits a monastery; an historian avoids facing her son’s disappearance and discovers that miracles are still possible.

Wonderfully evocative images…well worth reading.

Poetic in their brevity and chilling in their intensity.
