October 2014 Guest Editor Cecelia Ahern on The Tiny Wife...

This is a short novel by one of my favourite authors, who also wrote All My Friends Are Superheroes, another of my favourites. A robber charges into a bank with a loaded gun but instead of stealing money, he steals an item of sentimental value from each person in the bank and disappears. A tattoo comes to life, a husband turns into a snowman, a baby poos money and a woman discovers that she’s shrinking everyday and there’s nothing she can do to reverse it. It’s clever, unique, funny and thought provoking.

If you like Andrew Kaufman you might also like to read books by Will Wiles, Matt Haig and Paul Torday.

Synopsis

The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman

A magical short novel from the author of All My Friends are Superheroes.

A robber charges into a bank with a loaded gun, but instead of taking any money he steals an item of sentimental value from each person. Once he has made his escape, strange things start to happen to the victims. A tattoo comes to life, a husband turns into a snowman, a baby starts to shit money. And Stacey Hinterland discovers that she's shrinking, a little every day, and there is seemingly nothing that she or her husband can do to reverse the process. The Tiny Wife is a weird and wonderful modern fable. Small, but perfectly formed, it will charm, delight and unnerve in equal measure.
