The Prison, a new anthology of short stories by Darlington author and Inkerman Writers member Michael Jarvie, is on sale for reading on Kindle.
Taking its inspiration from James Joyce’s notion of the “epiphany,” as exemplified by his pioneering work “Dubliners,” this collection of short stories – or composite novel – focuses on the theme of imprisonment.
Spanning the childhood, adolescence and manhood of a single unnamed narrator, the ten stories explore the “mind-forged manacles” of religion, the constricting nature of the sex drive and the drudgery of a worker trapped inside the “carceral machine.” The book can be purchased at
