Source Text: #xE9;, illuminating tales with sparks of surprise. His writing is sequined with sparkling descriptions' --Independent on Sunday'A sort of sparse utility makes Evers' prose so compelling. He can be funny, but his world view is bleak. It's a rich sort of bleakness, though, saturated with nostalgia.' --The Times'I enjoyed the ten tales, with their musing, film noir atmosphere; Evers is a deft, spare writer.' --Daily Mail'Ten Stories about Smoking is an original debut, several of the stories are outstanding, some are profound ... Book covers are designed to catch the eye, the witty, innovative packaging of Ten Stories About Smoking has done exactly that. The stories are equally impressive, touching, true and shocking in their humanity . . . Living is difficult. Most of us are frightened. Smokers may appear more daring because they risk their lives. But here is a book that comes in a cigarette pack that not only makes more sense of life, it will delight the mind, and certainly winds the argument that reading about cigarettes is far safer than actually smoking.' --Eileen Batterby, The Irish Times'Raymond Carver's influence is strong throughout, culminating in the final story in which Carver himself appears, dying of lung cancer and reflecting upon what would be his own final story, "Errand" (itself a homage to a man in his last hours, Chekhov). It's a dark joke of Evers's to put it at the end here. Download it on your Kindle if you must, but the book's design is worth a comment. The paperback comes in its own sturdy flip-top carton designed to resemble a giant cigarette packet. This could have made for a gimmicky disaster, but the result is oddly pleasing: it's impossible to resist the urge to tuck the book back into its box between stories. Packaged like a guilty, disposable indulgence, the collection reminds us that the short story is perfect for bringing some colour and imagination into a day, and that we are never, ever too busy to read - nip out for a five-minute break; snatch a sneaky story with a glass of wine. The tales in this collection are observant and understated, and all in the time it takes to have a fag.' --Guardian'In this impressive debut, Stuart Evers presents us with a range of narrators whose voices are immediately captivating. His prose effortlessly draws you into each character's emotional microcosm, whether it's the blunt, stilted reflections of a bereaved man searching for a long-lost brother or a sleepless woman smoking her way through a burden of inherited guilt . . . Evers has written a collection of stories which are surprisingly intense and affecting; they may be short-lived but, like the best writing, they linger in the mind.' --Telegraph.co.uk`The stories in Evers's staggeringly impressive debut capture characters just at the point, in their early 30s, when their youth is undeniably over. Which is where the smoking comes in. Throughout the book, cigarettes represent a more carefree time...Fortunately, though, Evers never labours the points. Instead, the sharpness - and quiet sympathy - of his writing lets the poignancy speak for itself. Th
