A little bit about 15 Minutes:
Fifteen Minutes (Unbound Publishing)
“Sharp observations on modern obsessions. Gripping, witty and perceptive.” – Laura Wilkinson, author of Skin Deep
In a world obsessed with celebrity culture do the best stories belong to ordinary people?
A tramp wanders through New York on the day John Lennon is shot; a doctor remembers a Muhammad Ali fight from his childhood; a mother’s Harry Potter obsession follows the death of her child.
Intentionally or not, celebrities past, present and future assert their influence over the lives of us all. Addressing this very modern phenomenon, these stories offer an unflinchingly honest and thought-provoking picture of the world in which we live.
Fifteen Minutes is a short story collection about fame, presented through the extraordinary eyes of unabashedly ordinary characters.
‘Rapier sharp observations on modern obsessions. Gripping, witty and perceptive. These are stories to savour.’
Laura Wilkinson (author of Skin Deep, Redemption Song, The Family Line)
‘Like those great storytellers Alice Munro and Elizabeth Strout, Erinna Mettler treads a fine line – empathising with her characters and revealing their flaws without ever succumbing to sentiment – and delivers a richly rewarding read.’
Sarah Rayner (author of One Moment, One Morning)
‘Mettler’s stories are delightful journeys, the kind where you don’t arrive at the place you imagined, but always somewhere stranger and more magical.’
William Shaw ( author The Birdwatcher and the Breen & Tozer Trilogy)
OUT NOW in paperback and e-book.
