About this book

The Life of Worm & Other Misconceptions | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies

Ken Barris

Kwela

A collection of new and critically acclaimed stories by award-winning South African author Ken Barris. Here, Barris’s work combines everyday events with the surreal and fantastical: the title story centres on a dog called Worm; in another, husband and wife quarrel over a plugless lamp; and in another, a man encounters a speaking baboon in his kitchen. Poised, lyrical and humorous, the stories in this collection concretise the human condition via the author’s characteristically unfettered style.
