“David Belbin’s stories are a penetrating representation of life, and lives, and if you are quite the same after reading them as you were before you began, maybe your receiver is switched off. At first you may feel that not much happens, but a moment’s consideration of what life consists of for most people will reveal that an enormous amount does happen, and most of it is emotionally and spiritually – what? upsetting? mundane? important? – delete as appropriate. There’s such a soul-shuddering realism and attention to detail in these stories, they should come with some kind of mental health warning attached, especially for men in their 40s or 50s.” – Martin Stannard
