  • Delirium is the new collection of short prose by award-winning author Robert Minhinnick. In classic Minhinnick style, it opens with his father’s diary kept in Burma during World War II, and the author telling stories to his mother in her care home. Characteristically broad ranging in thought and style, with a poet’s eye for the telling image and ear for the lyrical, Delirium is a kaleidoscopic book which provokes and intrigues. Available now.

    Robert Minhinnick’s new prose collection is a breathless epic
