Johannesburg: Ge’Ko Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of “A Body Remembered” the debut collection of short stories from author David Chislett.
Chislett previously created and edited the Urban series of short stories which showcased new and previously unpublished authors from 2001 until 2003. “A Body remembered” is his first collection of entirely his own work.
The book contains fifteen stories that range from straight-out horror tales to curious slice of life vignettes from the underbelly of South African urban life.
“My primary concern with most of my writing is the exploration of identity and the meaning it either creates or doesn’t” says Chislett. “This I explore in most of the stories either through structural or thematic devices. But on the surface, I hope that they are just plain good stories that are fun to read.
Short stories are the fiction of today: bite sized, easy to digest and prefect for reading on the hoof. I hope that lots of people agree with me!”
Andrew Miller, publisher at Ge’Ko said, “We are pleased to be working with David, who has established himself over the last 10 years in the literary scene in South Africa. We’ve loved developing this book with him and, we are looking forward to a partnership that will see a lot more work forthcoming.”
“A Body Remembered” will be available in all good bookshops from mid September and can be pre-ordered from www.unitydesign.co.za/eshop
Published by Ge’Ko and distributed by Blue Weaver, “A Body Remembered” is an independent publishing project.
