Tomorrow All Will Be Beautiful by Bridgid Lowry
Brigid Lowry uses her wonderful and often surprising prose in this collection of short stories and poetry. There are lovely phrases scattered through the stories – “mashed banana story”, or describing girls as “bewildered little puddings with … pretty names”. You can pretty much delve into any of the stories and get beautiful examples of Brigid Lowry language - examples that make you stop and think "goodness that's an amazing way of saying that!"
I guess if one was looking for a theme to the stories and poetry it is just “Life”.
Definitely one for the older more accomplished readers.
