She is working on her first novel and a PhD. ‘Carys Bray lays to rest the myth that fiction which examines the domestic sphere is familiar and unchallenging. She explores parenthood, loss, childhood and belonging with razor-sharp prose, a killer eye for the stop-in-your-tracks detail and a real understanding of the hidden cruelties and unexpectedly sharp comforts of family life.’ Jenn Ashworth ‘I think the ability to cross gender is the mark of a real writer. The author knew her stuff – the mounting parental anxiety was keenly observed and conveyed, very authentically, the appalling and perpetual torment of irrational fear.’ Salley Vickers ‘Suburbia in all its tarnished glory – Carys Bray teases at the cracks, and pulls at all the loose threads dangling, in short stories that are funny and sad and achingly true.’ Robert Shearman Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
