Praise for Stories for Homes 2:
“Stories give our imaginations a home. It’s good to see them helping to give people shelter in the real world, too…” JOANNE HARRIS, author of Chocolat
“A cornucopia of witty, tragic, elegant, raw, heart-warming and terrifying stories that take the idea of Home, play with it as only truly talented writers can, and all to help those who have no home at all.” EMMA DARWIN, author of The Mathematics of Love and A Secret Alchemy
