How the Light Gets In

Influx Press published my collection of very short fiction, How the Light Gets In, in June 2018.

“This collection of short stories – some of them very short – explores all aspects of modern life… Fisher’s tales are funny and moving, and you’ll treasure them all.” Stylist (June’s Best New Books)

“Her new book cements her position as an innovative literary talent… A swirling collection of short stories that moves from fried chicken shops to Tube stations to buffering Skype chats, but never fails to get to the essence of what makes a human tick in the digital age. Her conversational prose style is disarming, and with no story more than four pages in length the book is compulsively readable, often funny, and sometimes unsettling.” New Statesman

A few stories are extracted at MinorLits.

The collection began life as part of a live art installation I made for Leeds Light Night 2014, funded by an Arts Council England SHINE Emerging Artist Bursary; it evolved hugely under Kit Caless’s fine editorship (is editorship a thing?) and I hope you enjoy the finished collection.
