In this first collection by Zinnie Harris, Further than the Furthest Thing evokes the fragility of an island community as their way of life is threatened and they must determine their future, while Midwinter opens as a woman steals a dead horse to feed to a child. How To Hold Your Breath tells the story of a woman who sleeps with the devil and defends her belief in love, even as her world collapses around her, and Meet Me at Dawn offers a compelling, allegorical love story that explores the desolating effects of grief. With an introduction by director Dominic Hill. Further than the Furthest Thing ‘Already has the status of a modern classic.’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian ‘Arguably the greatest tragedy in the Scottish theatrical canon’ Mark Brown, Telegraph Midwinter ‘There is no mistaking her talent’ Observer ‘A stunning metaphor for our time’ Herald How to Hold Your Breath ‘Harris’s writing is not only wonderfully imaginative, but also beautifully light.’ Tribune ‘Dizzyingly bold . . . pressingly topical and admirably ambitious’ Financial Times Meet Me at Dawn ‘A twenty-first-century classic’ Scotsman ‘Lyrical, raw and hazy’ Sunday Times
