Sorry, temporarily out of stock
In Loranne Vella’s what will it take for me to leave, everyone is a player in a game. A multitude of figures and disembodied voices barter the terms of relationships, solve puzzles, set riddles, play hide-and-seek – and they will do anything to come out on top, even cheat themselves of the truth… An enigmatic, dark and at times humorous collection of stories that makes us cross swords with the past, the present and the future, in a deft translation by Kat Storace.
‘What will it take for me to leave has a surface of the quotidian and routine but, oh my, what rich worlds are conjured in these stories and fragments! Tensions, desires, regrets and complexities are conveyed with such nuance and freshness. I loved it.’ – Wendy Erskine, author of Sweet Home
