Born free by Laura Hird( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Punchy, acerbic, sharp-witted and above-all, acutely observed, Born Free tells the story of an ordinary family who are all trying to escape from something - and each other. The interactions between Jake, Joni, Angie and Vic reveal a hellish cocktail of adolescent and mid-life crises; the savagery of sibling rivalry; the waking nightmare of a marriage gone cold - and, naturally, the unbridgeable, infernal chasm between the generations. It's a story of everyday life
Nail : and other stories by Laura Hird( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and French and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte, jeune femme futile et snob, voit son existence perturbée par une modification corporelle qui dénature son ongle et l'entraîne vers la haine et la folie. Progressivement les tares du personnage apparaissent. L'auteur tente de montrer sa propre vision d'une humanité urbaine, endurcie par ses combats et par la fréquentation de la violence
Hope, and other urban tales by Laura Hird( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban tales of despair and dysfunction are Laura Hird's trademark and she does not disappoint in Hope and Other Urban Tales. Set in the low-rent areas of Edinburgh, Hird's slices of reality are gritty, bleak and often darkly funny. Yet the possibility of hope, always just out of reach, unifies this collection, conveying that just as circumstances can reveal the morally obscure darkness in 'good' people, so can seemingly irredeemable characters harbour well-hidden pockets of humanity
