We Don't Know What We're Doing

Stories

Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize 2016

´Heart-hurtingly acute, laugh-out-loud funny, and not just a book of the year for me but one of the most satisfying collections I´ve read for years.´ Ali Smith, Guardian

A young video shop assistant exchanges the home comforts of one mother-figure for a fleeting encounter with another; a brother and sister find themselves at the bottom of a coal mine with a Japanese tourist; a Welsh stag on a debauched weekend in Dublin confesses an unimaginable truth; and a twice-widowed pensioner tries to persuade the lovely Mrs Morgan to be his date at the town´s summer festival...

Set in Caerphilly, a sleepy castle town in South Wales, Thomas Morris´ debut collection reveals its treasures in unexpected ways, offering vivid and moving glimpses of the lost, lonely and bemused. By turns poignant, witty, and tender - these entertaining stories detail the lives of people who know where they are, but don´t know what they´re doing.

This is the work of a young writer with a startlingly fresh voice, an uncanny ear for dialogue and a broad emotional range. We Don´t Know What We´re Doing is a major launch for the Faber fiction list in 2015.
