Preorder My Mother Was An Upright Piano, by Tania Hershman

My Mother Was An Upright Piano, a collection of stories by Tania Hershman, is now available for preorder from Tangent Books. Preorders will be signed by the author, and there is also a limited edition available with an extra story included.

A scintillating collection of 56 short fictions by one of the genre’s most daring exponents, whose economy of words cloaks her subtlety and power. Tania Hershman’s work is powerful, spiky and off-beat but with a distinct warmth and affection for her subjects.

My Mother Was an Upright Piano builds on the strengths of Tania Hershman’s first collection of short stories The White Road which was commended by the judges of the 2009 Orange Award for New Writers. Hershman’s fiction is inspiring, thought-provoking and witty.
