In June, 2006, Picador launch Picador Shots, a new series of
pocket-sized books priced at GBP1. The Shots aim to promote the
short story as well as the work of some Picador's greatest authors.
They will be contemporarily packaged but ultimately disposable
books that are the ideal literary alternative to a magazine. Tim
Winton's SMALL MERCIES will be one of the first shots and comes
from Tim Winton's latest collection, The Turning. Small Mercies is
a beautifully crafted story that is as tender as it is confronting.
Pete Dyson is devasted after the suicide of his young wife and
desperate to deal with his grief to protect his four-year old son.
Realising that the only way to move on is to effectively move back,
he returns to his home town and to the ghosts of his past that seem
far too ready to haunt him all over again - particularly that of
his destructive and devasting first love, Fay.
