Very modern ghost stories from the Booker-nominated author of The Wall.

'Sharp, humorous, satirical . . . a mind-bending collection.' - TLS

Household gizmos with a mind of their own.

Constant cold calls from unknown numbers.

And the creeping suspicion that none of this is real.


Reality, and Other Stories is a gathering of deliciously chilling entertainments - stories to be read as the evenings draw in and the days are haunted by all the ghastly schlock, uncanny technologies and absurd horrors of modern life.
