Description

LOOPHOLE, noun. 1. An escape route from a sticky situation. 2. A chink in the system that allows us to circumvent or avoid consequences. These perfectly formed microfictions provide glimpses into the everyday challenges of family life, relationships, ageing and loss. McCreery's characters are typical humans - flawed, vulnerable, frustrating and frustrated. Told with empathy and wit and honed with a wordsmith's skill, Loopholes makes us see ourselves and each other differently. With illustrations by Bettina Kaiser 'To succeed, microfiction must combine efficiency of text with immediacy of imagery and neat narrative twists, all in a space small enough for a single reading. It's an artform that Susan McCreery shows a masterly command of.' Hilary Simmons, BOOKS+PUBLISHING
