Description for Hieroglyphics And Other Stories Paperback. From the Orange- and Whitbread-shortlisted author of Buddha Da Num Pages: 176 pages. BIC Classification: DQ; FA; FYB. Category: (G) General (US: Trade). Dimension: 199 x 131 x 11. Weight in Grams: 128.

A beautiful collection - charming, witty and touching - these stories give voice to a variety of different characters: from the little girl who wants to look 'subtle' for her father's funeral, a child who has an email pen pal on Jupiter and an old lady who becomes a star through 'zimmerobics'.

Often writing in a vibrant Glaswegian vernacular, Donovan deftly gives her characters authenticity with a searing power, aided and abetted by tender subtlety.
