A story about grief

My short story, Much - in fact quite a long story at over eight thousand words - is in this lovely paperback collection of winning stories from the Exeter Story Prize 2017.

"One day...his ordinary life will shift back into place, rearranged around the gap of her."
I'm especially pleased for this story to be published because it focuses on ways of grieving and was especially moving to write. Narrated from the alternating viewpoints of a father and son, and told from the heart, it shows different ways in which the loss of a child can be experienced, expressed and ultimately accepted.
