Things In Jars By Jess Kidd

Our Bookseller says:

“Jess Kidd’s storytelling ability is so intensely enjoyable. It’s like all the stories I loved to read as a kid, but with the complexity and character development I crave as an adult. She’s a genius with language and action: every innuendo has its physical comedy counterpart, every sideways glance or twitch of the mouth is a veritable palimpsest of wit and communication. This book is gory and gorgeous, raunchy and Romantic, with the spirit of a sea-shanty and the witchiness of an old wive’s tale. Kidd brings together the best of these storytelling traditions and freshens it with her sharp perception and disarming and endearing cast of characters. Bang-on funny and scrumptiously, relentlessly perfect, I won’t be forgetting about Bridie Devine and her adventures anytime soon.” – Julia
