ASHES is a memoir by the first-born child of Bengali immigrants from Calcutta, India, which brings forth universal life lessons that transcend ethnicity. With raw honesty and simple prose, Ms. Mukherji depicts her childhood of cultural confusion, schoolyard bullies and the demands of her brilliant, abusive, alcoholic father. She offers her mother's stoic wisdom and love for all to share. By her early twenties, Ms. Mukherji seeks clarity instead of pity and details her search for herself through psychotherapy and spiritual studies. The result of that search costs her everything. The suicide of her mother leaves Ms. Mukherji in the thick darkness of grief and sorrow. Both propel her into destructive yet illuminating choices. In time, she gathers her experiences and uses them to transform her life into the one she wants and the one she may claim in her mother's absence. ASHES shows the reader that they are not alone in their struggles and that they can look within themselves to survive and grow from life's precious and painful surprises.

They go to the heart of things. ‘Original and quietly devastating’ Daily Telegraph ‘Raymond Carver and Alice Munro echo throughout. Exquisite’ New Statesman ‘Brilliantly restrained and emotionally mature’ Scotland on Sunday ‘Writing sequined with sparkling descriptions’ Independent on Sunday ‘Inhaling each story is a hauntingly wonderful experience’ Easy Living ‘Reminds us that the short story is perfect for bringing some colour and imagination into a day’ Guardian

In this striking collection of noir short stories Welsh writer Math Bird gives us tales of the haunted and the lost. Set in the borderlands of northeast Wales, among a landscape of forests and hills, small coastal towns, and the Dee estuary, these are the stories of lonely boys and grief stricken men, ill-fated lovers, tough women, distant fathers and disillusioned sons. Many of them hell-bent on revenge, battling with both the present and the past. Bird writes about men and women and the social and geographical borders they cross. Throughout these tales runs the influence of place, and how the land and its ghosts can redeem us.
