Russell Mardell originally trained in film production, producing numerous short films and a forthcoming music documentary. He also writes for the stage and is a member of Salisbury Fringe in his hometown, which promotes new writing. His former books published by Matador include Darkshines Seven, Bleeker Hill and Stone Bleeding.
A pointed, wryly amusing look at relationships in the modern world. Ray is a cold caller, he lives in London with his best friend Danny, and is still mourning the break up of his relationship five years on. Anya owns a coffee shop in Salisbury, her friend Eva is an author of children’s books, yet she dislikes children intensely. When Ray cold calls Anya, a friendship develops, each coming to rely on the other. We hear from Ray, Anya, Danny and Eva, often learning more about each person from their friend, rather than from the person themselves. Russell Mardell manages the four tales with aplomb. From speed-dating to tomato-gate this is an amusing tale that bites (with barbed fangs). ~ Liz Robinson
