Salley Vickers is a master of the uncanny and the unexpected. The Boy Who Could See Death is her new brilliantly enchanting and unsettling collection of short stories. She has always subtly explored bereavement and betrayal, closely guarded secrets and common secrets. Each of the stories here are perfectly formed; vignettes, snapshots, thoughtful portraits examining the human and spiritual condition.
Salley Vickers is the author of the word-of-mouth bestseller Miss Garnet’s Angel and several other bestselling novels including Mr Golightly’s Holiday, The Other Side of You and Dancing Backwards. ‘Salley Vickers sees with a clear eye and writes with a light hand – she knows how the world works. Salley is a presence worth cherishing’ – Philip Pullman
