About this deal

With fiction, even though it starts in fact, you might add to it, just to make it this thing, to enjoy the story and its richness. I’m still out on tour with my show Re-Enchantment until the end of September too, if you fancy seeing my stand up!

Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page.Long showcases these heightened feelings almost to an extreme point, and while they can be exciting, deranged and cringey to read about, you do have to ask yourself - What would happen if we did let the intrusive thoughts win?

The stories were mainly the soft thought provoking type, with a lot of interiority and reflection, not too much on the comic front. There are pieces that feel sketchy and underdeveloped, and a few thin supporting characters (the yapping friend in 'Volunteering' especially) that seem like straw men for the story's purpose. There's also Long's occasional glitch where the story explains itself to the reader, the way a radio essay or stand-up routine might make its message explicit - in a couple of the stories here it feels heavy-handed (not least because some of the stories have italicised sections at the end explaining the sources and quotes the ideas come from. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I think thething that unites all of the narrators is a kind of intensity of feeling and perhaps an overthinking quality.Why she chose to waste her time on a load of short stories (especially frequent ones that are more like short events than actual, structured stories) instead of a real story is beyond me.
