"Fractured families, domestic claustrophobia, and the unseen menace of the everyday. Alison Moore's debut collection of short fiction shares the same emotional tension and tightly controlled prose that garnered her first novel, The Lighthouse, a spot on the Man Booker shortlist. From flash fictions to the novella, insightful realism to chilling gothic horror, Moore's talents are on full display here."--

Missing by Alison Moore( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having moved from the Fens to the Midlands to the Scottish Borders, Jessie Noon finds herself struggling to leave the past behind. Following a family tragedy, Jessie Noon moved from the Fens to the Midlands and now lives in the Scottish Borders with a cat, a dog and - she is convinced - a ghost in the spare room. Her husband walked out almost a year ago, leaving a note written in steam on the bathroom mirror, and Jessie hasn't seen her son for years. When Jessie meets Robert, a local outreach worker, they are drawn to one another and begin a relationship; meanwhile, Jessie has begun receiving messages telling her I'm on my way home. As a translator, Jessie worries over what seems like the terrible responsibility of choosing the right words. It isn't exactly a matter of life and death, said her husband, but Jessie knows otherwise. This is a novel about communication and miscommunication and lives hanging in the balance (a child going missing, a boy in a coma, an unborn baby), occupying the fine line between life and death, between existing and not existing
