Fish + Chocolate

By Kate Brown

Hardback, 128 pp, £14.99

Award-winning graphic novelist Kate Brown presents three original short stories about a mother's fears, dilemmas and grief.

The joy of birth, the comfort of the family and the security of the home are stripped away to reveal disturbing themes of loss, rejection and vulnerability.

Unsettlingly strange and darkly haunting, the three interlinked fables of Fish + Chocolate will reverberate long after the last page is turned.
