'One of the virtues of this anthology is that it steals the little black dress, and a whole wardrobe of companion garments, back from fashion journalism.’
Susie Maguire is a former actor, comedy performer and TV presenter, who now writes fiction.
She is deviser and editor of LITTLE BLACK DRESS, an anthology of short stories by women on the theme of the ubiquitous and iconic frock, published March 2006
Her own stories are published in two collections: FURTHERMORE (2005)
and THE SHORT HELLO (2000)
‘Love, desire, romance, passion, lust...and humour. Bittersweet, a treasure-trove collection.’
'Maguire writes with a rich vein of dark humour...imaginative insight and an intriguingly eccentric creativity. Her throwaway wit makes for compulsive reading.'
'The first ever collection of Scottish crime fiction, and not a blood-stained sgian-dubh in sight... dark, rich and original.’
'Susie Maguire’s is a voice that doesn’t resemble anyone else’s, and her vision of the world is clear, astringent, and generous.'
'A feast of comic writing, from Chic Murray to Irvine Welsh... relishing the ludicrous and absurd.'
