Published by Currency Press

A terrified 12-year-old boy finds himself separated from his family in the unfamiliar streets of a war torn city

He takes refuge in a bombed-out house and in the total blackness his bravado crumbles into tears

Into his life steps Anna - older, street smart and scornful of his crying

As a way of shutting the boy up, she starts to tell him a story that she vaguely remembers from her own childhood

And so begins a journey into the shifting, shimmering world of ogres, princes, singing bones, foolish lads and wolf-mothers

Stories in the Dark explores the power of storytelling, mingling the magic and earthy wisdom of folk tales with the hard-edged story of violence, conflict and the struggle to survive
