Sarah Court. Meet the residents. . . .
The haunted father of a washed-up stuntman. A disgraced surgeon and his son, a broken-down boxer. A father set on permanent self-destruct, and his daughter, a reluctant powerlifter. A fireworks-maker and his daughter. A very peculiar boy and his equally peculiar adopted family.
Five houses. Five families. One block.
Ask yourself: How well do you know your neighbours? How well do you know your own family? Ultimately, how well do you know yourself? How deeply do the threads of your own life entwine with those around you? Do you ever really know how tightly those threads are knotted? Do you want to know?
I know, and can show you. Please, let me show you.
Welcome to Sarah Court: make yourself at home.

Praise for Craig Davidson
“Davidson smudges the line between comedy and horror, cruelty and mercy. His remarkable stories are challenging and upsetting. Don’t look for comfort here.”
—Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club
“There is a strikingly original tone to Mr. Davidson’s stories. The prose is spare yet elegant, the insights are fresh and real, and best of all there is a boundless humanity in Mr. Davidson’s writing: a love of life that is beautifully woven with an acute sense of its darkness.”
—Clive Barker, author of The Books of Blood
“A writer of immense power and surprising, accurate insights.”
“Davidson has a gift for writing about physicality, and violence in particular, with an ecstasy and intimacy that resembles A.S. Byatt on painting or Ray Robertson on music. In his hands a weightlifting accident or boxing match becomes an experience lived rather than described.”
—Quill & Quire (starred review)
