Description

From the author of The Devil’s Dye

This eclectic and thought provoking collection of short stories explores topics of psychology, sexuality, adoption, and ghosts, to name but a few.

Two things bind them: firstly, the fen spirit that weaves like an eel though the tales, creeping subtly in, but soon to claim them tightly as its own.  Secondly, the exploration of loss, abandonment and what it means to belong.

Just as the agricultural fen landscape fights to expose its natural marsh self, so the characters must bravely stir their true identities to try and gain inner peace.

The intertwined stories offer us a glimpse of lives lived on East Anglia’s Fenland: rich soil for the keen observational eye of Jeni Neill.

  1. Jo Eggleston

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading the short stories in Fen Roads. After living in East Anglia as a nurse many years ago, I could appreciate the landscape, language and culture of this particular region of England. The cold bleak vast skies and flat landscape blend with the sometimes uncomfortable stories. There were unexpected twists and turns, quite Alan Bennet come Tales of the Unexpected. The stories flow and some are inter-connected with each other. Very thought provoking topics and characters. The man on the train, the young student nurse and the school friends, all have captivating tales, which leave you wanting more. Contemporary themes with a blast of past memories blended in beautifully.
