'...We'd buy the big kind - the ones that would near choke ya if you didn't suck 'em right.'

        
        "The eponymous "Jawbreakers", by Jen Campbell, concisely evokes a child's attempts to assert themselves in a world of muddled morals. This flash captures a kind of disillusionment alongside tactile sensations, so that the reader can almost feel the gobstopper's stickiness on the tips of their fingers."
('Jawbreakers: National Flash Fiction Anthology' reviewed in 'Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine').
The collection itself, with stories from me, Ali Smith, Ian Rankin, David Gaffney and others is available over here.

  1. That's your name right there Jen, next to Ali Smith's. Also, clearly I need a copy of this for my 'Jen shelf' which actually is an actual thing [and will one day house 'the novel' - no pressre ;) ]
