Summary

Land of Hunger is a collection of short stories, that interconnect, loop and return upon each other despite their seemingly disparate subject matter. Fragments that resonate across time and place, from the Ukraine during the Russian Civil War, to the miners' strike, to the world of animal rights protestors. The stories are all about the collection of fictions that make up a writer. A fantasy of who the author is, where he comes from; the story of a fragile, shifting identity built on facts, yet obscuring them. In doing this, Wayne Holloway embodies our deep hunger for the stories of who and why we are. "At long last: A short-story collection packed with meaning. LAND OF HUNGER is a socio-political odyssey that is both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving. Wayne Holloway is a much-needed breath of fresh air." Lee Rourke, author of Vulgar Things and winner of the Guardian's Not the Booker Prize 2010
