Footprints can suggest so much. However indistinct or transient, however dark or deep, each mark has its own story.

Anna Wigley’s Footprints is a collection of short stories, each tale in turn sketching the fleeting impression of a particular place, scene or occasion. The moods vary from story to story: the breezy and the melancholy keep company with the evocative and the exuberant. The schoolgirls on the weekend bus rub shoulders with the pompous professor; likewise, the crooked librarian and the foundling kitten...

In its sympathetic observation of everyday life and in its poetic precision of language, Footprints is a collection that is here to stay.
