echocloseJack Tremenyans hates Christmas – with a foul-mouthed passion; Barbara Morethek is only happy when she’s sad; Florence Bray can’t stand her best friend; and Archie thinks all the world has gone to shit.

One Big Echo of a Much Nicer Place and other Stories is a collection of eleven short stories by Martin Philp. Largely set in the Cornish communities of Hayle and Penzance, it brings a fresh perspective to small-town lives through characters that never fail to appear extraordinarily vivid.
