Each of the tiny tales in this collection takes its title headline from the BBC News Website. But this isn't reportage by any stretch of the imagination. The choice of headline provided a catalyst for a daily act of invention. They are stories of fleeting moments, high drama and pop culture mash ups, prose, lists and confessionals. Read individually or collectively the effect is similar to channel surfing - fuzzy logic and blurred connections appear and through this the collection finds its own shape. 

May 29 Men injured in separate shootings 

Today I read a man was shot in the leg during a burglary in my home town Inverness, where my mother and sister still live. It made me feel guilty as I don't call often enough. Later, the radio reported another incident, a man shot in the stomach described as being in a stable but critical situation; this man lived near Great Yarmouth, the seaside town my father had scuttled off to when he met the woman with the hips. 
This time it brought back memories of Saturday afternoons watching wrestling together; Giant Haystacks and Rollerball Rocco. She looked like Big Daddy, the woman he'd ran off with.
