Gatehouse Press are pleased to announce the publication of our second New Fictions winner from 14/15. And the Years Rolled by at an Alarming Rate is a mini-masterpiece. A lifetime’s desire and loss flickers in and out of focus in this searching debut. Nicola Daly cuts to the heart of how we remember and how we forget. With its precision and observational wit, Daly’s warm but uncompromising prose draws us into a story of how, in the end, a relationship’s imperfections, disappointments and failures can hold less power over us than the enduring presence of love.
In other news, Preti Taneja, the other winner of the New Fiction’s 14/15 for her story, Kumkum Malhotra, has been signed with Galley Beggars for her first novel. You can read about this here: http://www.thebookseller.com/news/superb-re-telling-king-lear-galley-beggar-press-321247
We’re really thrilled for Preti – Galley Beggars are one of the best independent presses in the UK, and her novel is excellent.
