My Mother Was an Upright Piano - Tania Hershman (Tangent)

My Mother Was an Upright Piano is Tania Hershman's second collection of short stories, and follows The White Road which was commended by the judges of the 2009 Orange Award for New Writers. It includes 56 short short fictions, some of which were broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

"Tania Hershman writes with such passion and playfulness, the pain and the fear and the hope woven through her stories hits all the harder. The result is beautiful, funny and quietly devastating." - Nicola Walker, actress (Spooks, Inside Men)
