About the book

Kate Atkinson, one of the world's great storytellers conjures a captivating new book of short stories; a gift for Kate Atkinson fans.

In this first full collection since Not the End of the World, we meet a queen who makes a bargain she cannot keep; a secretary who watches over the life she has just left; and a man whose luck changes when a horse speaks to him. Witty and wise, with subtle connections between the stories, Normal Rules Don't Apply is a startling , and funny feast for the imagination.

In Kate Atkinson's world nothing is over until ' the talking dog speaks.'
