“Sharp, original and observant, with a generous helping of humour, Joel Willans’s stories are both thought-provoking and hugely entertaining. A great read.” – Vanessa Gebbie, winner of The Telegraph’s Novel in a Year.
Inspired by sweet love, bitter breakups and one-sided adoration, Joel Willans’s Spellbound is a vivacious collection of eighteen prize-winning short stories highlighting the magical power women have over men.
With a rich cast of characters, including a family obsessed lads’ mag journalist, an insecure gigolo and a karate mad bricklayer, it promises a uniquely entertaining, moving and insightful read.
“Willans mines the vagaries of love and desire and heartache with a luminous resonance and poignancy. An impressive debut.” – Tom Vowler, winner of the Scott Prize and Edge Hill Short Story Prize.
