Like Fado

Like Fado

Author(s): Graham Mort

Location(s): World

Genre(s): Short Stories

Era(s): Present and various



Fado consists of thirteen individual stories that culminate in the extended novella-like story, Whitethorn . Each story takes us into the lived experience and psychological dilemmas of its characters, dissolving certitude in favour of richly ambivalent and suggestive endings as storylines merge and diverge, enriching each other through their narrative resonance. The natural world is brought to life in vivid detail in locations that range from the North-West of England to Europe and Africa, whilst the interior lives of characters form the dramatic locus of each piece, rendered in language that is precise, lyrical and evocative.
