Michael Middleton on BBC Radio Berkshire

Michael Middleton, author of 'Short Story Collection', appeared on BBC Radio Beckshire last week talking about his latest book with presenter Bill Buckley. 

'Short Story Collection' is the culmination of a passion for story telling in the written form.

Middleton has penned four stories:

  • Direct Action, an unlikely friendship between a down-and-out and a farmer results in an unlikely resolution for the latter's hardships.
  • Eugene's First Vacation
  • The Journey Home - a modest man from the American Deep South and his first online dating experience.
  • Stephen Harper's Gift, a tale of a bank robbery and the soluble paradigm of morals; each covering themes of justice, redemption and endurance, each story revealing everyday heroes within seemingly ordinary men, offering beacons of hope in dark times.

'Short Story Collection' is equal parts wit and humour, Middleton's style and diction adaptable to the environment he transports the pen to and a masterclass in the art of suspense; in this instance, short is shorthand for powerful.
