Tania Hershman | Unthank Books 2017
Tania Hershman is a former science journalist turned short story phenomenon. Her previous collections, including poetry, have attracted enormous praise and attention and in SOME OF US GLOW MORE THAN OTHERS she invites us to sample what life is like at the cutting edge of technology, where the future appears to be rushing ever faster to meet our present. Whether she is writing about genetics, laboratory etiquette, art and experimentation, or the simplest molecules that make up our myriad world, all her stories exude the power of her precision prose. Ranging from poignant cameos and unlikely viewpoints to the most complex decisions humans can make, these extraordinary stories gently challenge our world view as we careen toward the unknown and ask us to assess what we wish to retain of ourselves, what to jettison, and what we hope to attain when we get there. Stories from this, her third collection, have been heard on Radio 4 and Radio 3.
