Eating a Sandwich


The characters in Eating A Sandwich have a lot to put up with: paraplegia, murder, divorce, dull husbands: the resonance, or lack of it, of everyday life. This is an extraordinary collection of stories, a precise, understated view of Middle England.

I love Skelton’s odd lonely characters, the strong individual flavours of their lives and views, their vividly realised worlds.’
