Book review – We don’t know what we’re doing

On my bedside table: We don’t know what we’re doing by Thomas Morris

Why I picked it up: British author, black&white mugshots on the cover.

What it is about: From stuttering teenagers being arrested, to manic-depressed sisters befriending Japanese tourists, to flabby stag parties, Thomas Morris’ collection of short stories portrays a wide array of different people in different situations, all located in Caerphilly, South Wales, and brought together by the fact that they all have no clue what they are doing.

Would I recommend it: Yep. Witty, funny, this collection reads smoothly while delving deep into the lethargy and blandness of a sleepy town reality.
