[‘The Rabbit’ is] an immediately likeable story, beautifully crafted, elegantly written, with all the arts of a born storyteller… A writer of real promise.
PAUL BAILEY and FAY WELDON, judging the Tom-Gallon Award
The flash fiction pieces were extremely penetrating and confident… Becky Tipper’s ‘Meeting the Lobster’ genuinely takes the reader through a journey of increasing emotional identification…
A.L. KENNEDY judging the Bridport Prize
Becky Tipper’s ‘Birth Stories’ [an essay about caesarean birth]… is a truly excellent piece of writing… Anybody who has ever trotted out the cliché ‘all that matters is a healthy baby’ should be made to read this work.
