Through a Glass Darkly

By Lesley Hayes

Short-stories | Paperback


You will find dark humour within these pages, but also a narrative arrow pointing you towards truths about human nature. Some characters stand at a turning point leading to new awareness, or dangerous uncharted waters. Some demonstrate the intricacy of intimate relationships, revealing dashed expectations and surprising new horizons. The human spirit is indomitable, as is our capacity for investing hope. Stories help us make sense of what we feel and think, reminding us that our ambivalence and complexity of emotions are familiar to all. They reassure us that however lonely we may feel, we are not alone. In the byzantine twists and turns of their fortunes, the people you meet here will be poignantly recognisable – not angels or monsters, but just like you. These stories originally appeared in Kindle books as ‘Not Like Other People’ and ‘Without A Safety Net’.

Lesley Hayes lives in Oxford, UK and prior to becoming a psychotherapist was regularly published in literary and women's magazines, and for two years had a weekly slot on BBC Radio Oxford reading her short stories. Her successful career as a psychotherapist over the ensuing years took her away from fiction writing, but brought quite different rewards. It was a fork in the road she never once regretted taking, and she was aware of using many of same creative skills and insights. During the past seven years the compelling urge to write fiction has again emerged, and she has given in gracefully to the inevitable return to her first love. Her novels and short stories are all available on kindle and in paperback.
