“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,
judge for the Bridport Prize

“Becky Tipper’s ‘Birth Stories’… 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…”
