those city, commuter-friendly tales catch quirky occasions in enjoyable methods. Their darkish undertones and sharp-witted ironies hire commonly used settings equivalent to residences, lofts, studios and town streets , yet use strange and unforeseen city moments as backdrops to outré characters and their given idiosyncrasies.
a few of Hayes’ characters are at the social fringe, reminiscent of the mentally challenged narrator of the identify tale who unearths his approach via city lifestyles as a result of his seventy-year-old neighbour and the chances inherent in a video game of chess. a few obsess privately, akin to the protagonist in “The Runner” who turns into neurotically repulsed by way of the hair follicles on his girlfriend’s top lip, whereas others, just like the confirmed highway ball “cager” of the tale “In the Low publish” stews over his eroding status and regulate at the inner-city basketball court.

Edgy, shrewdpermanent and unpredictable, Derek Hayes; tales bend linear story-telling, and shift the narrative voices with such an brisk frequency that readers should want to return back simply to them simply to see how he does it.
