Dip Flash

by Jonathan Pinnock

In Dip Flash we are taken to worlds where houses disappear, a wife runs off with a porpoise, and on to Heaven, where only French is spoken. From a bull in a china shop to a scheme for releasing the equity in grannies, these stories are dark and raw, grotesque and fantastic. They are also laugh-out-loud funny.

A remarkable collection – compact, witty, incisive and surreal. Loved it!

Joanne Harris

Endlessly inventive and astonishingly original, these sharply executed slivers of wit and fun are well-crafted, yet have at the same time a rawness that makes you feel that they could have sprung out from Pinnock’s mind in one single unedited bound.

David Gaffney, author of Sawn-Off Tales

Jonathan Pinnock is the author of Mrs Darcy versus the Aliens (Proxima Books) – which occasionally gets included in lists of things that should never have been done to Jane Austen – and several other books.

About Dot Dash (Salt, 2012)

In these wonderful short, very short and very very short stories, Jonathan Pinnock takes aim at all the foibles and vanities we think we succeed in hiding. Not content to just pull back the curtain, Pinnock sets fire to it and chuckles as it blazes. Yet he also executes something of a conjuring trick, making us laugh, but also making us feel, think.

Jonathan Pinnock is Roald Dahl’s natural successor.

Vanessa Gebbie

It has all the makings of a bit of a modern classic.

Scott Pack

An entertaining collection of grotesque, fantastic, pungent little tales.
