Following the great success of his two volume anthology The Penguin Book of the British Short Story, and that of his own novel The Friendly Ones, Philip Hensher has now brought together a selection of the most brilliant examples of the contemporary British short story. Including stories from Neil Gaiman, Zadie Smith, Hilary Mantel and Eley Williams, this is a vibrant, varied and truly exciting collection.

Philip Hensher will be joined on the evening by celebrated authors Tessa Hadley and Gerard Woodward for a delve into the joys of the short form.
