Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned

Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned
Wells Tower, Granta Books 2010
Violent, tender and searingly funny, Wells Tower’s stories have become a phenomenon. His startling portraits of angry teenagers, marauding Vikings and drifting divorcees have earned him a devoted readership, ecstatic critical praise and a string of prizes and nominations. Behind the hype are the stories themselves: explosive combinations of electric prose and dark wit, which signal the arrival of a major new talent.
