London Road: Linked Stories by Tessa Smith McGovern

Winner of the Gold Medal in the 2012 eLit Awards in the Short Story category.

On the morning of her release from prison, the hottest day on record in England, Janice Bailey makes her way to a boarding house in London, and discovers a bizarre new world.

Part memoir, part fiction, this moving, uplifting collection of seven linked short stories begins with ‘When Janice Bailey Walked’, an award-winning story first published in the Connecticut Review. It continues with six more realistic yet comforting stories, as told by the residents of Number 17, London Road, thus illuminating a little-known side of the most beautiful city in Europe.
