The Man in the Shed by Lloyd Jones
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A boy watches his mother hooked and reeled ashore by a fisherman. A man builds a swing in the backyard to sit between his wife and her lover. A couple gives up their seat on a bus for lovers soon to be parted. A boy sees his mother come to life gliding on roller skates. Lloyd Jones's The Man in the Shed is a haunting collection of stories about family and longing. Jones's extraordinary tales take conventional family situations and tilts them sideways, delivering a memorable, beautiful blend of the suburban and the surreal.
