    "Short & Sweet - 5 Brilliant Stories!"

    Each story is a deserved winner, and 5 very varied scenarios reflecting with themes such as lost love, amnesia, aloneness, madness, justice, betrayal and solidarity (pity there are only 5 stories in all)!

    Overall, the collection is less than 2 hrs listening time, and at the end I was left wanting more. My only slight complaint is that on my iPhone, each story is just an anonymous chapter.

    I don't know who won, but for me 'My Daughter, the Racist' is the most thought provoking and contemporary account I have heard or read in a long time. It made me weep for the human condition.

    "Great contemporary writing"

    Accessible stories i could relate to, beautifully written. So refreshing to have these collections available. A change from the rather staid writers in some of the 20 century collections. I will be listening to more from the BBC Short Story titles.
