Superior Bedsits Summary


Superior Bedsits: And Other Stories by Helen Lamb

This short story collection covers a broad terrain, opening with a beautifully witty monologue of childhood kissing techniques in Three Kinds of Kissing. The title story reveals the paper-thin world of bedsits, while the terse, dark and haunting qualities of The Wall and The Shadow Man give way to a poignant study of daughter-father relationships in A Good Ear. The easy humour inspired by vulgar Olga in Opretta is perfectly balanced by Painted Toes, a subtle and candid depiction of a disintegrating relationship.

Superior Bedsits Reviews


Helen Lamb's is a subtle voice, but one which is informed by a concise mind which has considered human relationships long and hard and with unflinching honesty. Lamb excels at catching the telling moments when each character must face the reality of the other, and of themselves.
