Description

A stunning new collection of stories from the Man Booker Prize and Whitbread Prize shortlisted author.

Many of Legoland‘s stories begin with the seemingly every day, only for a turn of events to land them in an unsettling place where life’s normal rules no longer apply. Whether he’s writing about a child’s birthday party or the invasion of an unnamed country each story is full of Woodward’s blacker-than-black humour, fearless surrealism, and poetic phrasing. Included here is his brilliant story ‘The Family Whistle’, shortlisted for the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award.

Legoland celebrates Woodward’s trademark gift for wit and surprise: his lithe prose carrying us from comedy to tragedy and back again within a single tale. It confirms him as one of the most gifted and original writers of our time.

‘Gerard Woodward falls squarely between the comic lunacy of American short-form virtuoso George Saunders and the everyday rhapsodies of Raymond Carver’ Time Out
