A wonderful new collection of inventive, other wordly stories from one of Britain's most beloved authors. From a fairy tale queen who makes a bargain she cannot keep, a goddess with the power to create any world she wants and a man who bets on a horse that may - or may not - have spoken to him, these stories crackle with Kate Atkinson's intelligence, wit and humour.
One of the world's great storytellers conjures a captivating new book. In this first full collection since Not the End of the World, we meet a queen who makes a bargain she cannot keep; a secretary who watches over the life she has just left; and a man whose luck changes when a horse speaks to him. Witty and wise, with subtle connections between the stories, Normal Rules Don't Apply is a startling , and funny feast for the imagination. In Kate Atkinson's world nothing is over until ' the talking dog speaks.'
