This is H A Howe’s second collection of fictional stories dealing with fears and tragedies, and although often interwoven with a humorous thread, they do highlight the darker side of life. In her belief that short stories should be able to captivate the reader just as much as longer novels, this new collection does not disappoint. As Herbert Kretzmer, OBE (journalist and lyricist) said of her previous work, ‘H A Howe’s chief asset is a capacity to draw the reader in to the tales, making the reader eager to know what happens next’.
True to her style, H A Howe likes to surprise the reader – so expect the unexpected.
Peter Bogdanovich – Film Director/writer/critic/film historian: ‘…More Thorns Than Roses …is definitely thorny, edgy, dark and very eloquently written. The tales ring true and leave you wanting more as soon as possible. H A Howe is a very gifted writer.’
John Nathan – Journalist The Times, The Independent, Jewish Chronicle: ‘Short Stories doesn’t quite say it. H A Howe’s tales of misadventure are as brief as a moment and as fully formed as a thriller’.
That’s Books and Entertainment Book Shop: 'More Thorns Than Roses is a remarkable collection of short stories from H. A. Howe. It's an interesting collection of disparate ideas and themes. There are tales of love, of betrayal, of fears, real and imagined and tragedy events of the kind that make people shake their heads and say: "We should have seen that coming" but, somehow, nobody ever does.'
