From there, each story draws a claustrophobic spiral round the next, following various characters (or is it the same person?) desperate to flee their demons.Sean OBriens stories also spiral outwards - not from a state of mind but a setting: an ornate, vaulted lending library, an edifice from another age, where unlikely users and chance items found in stock lead to quite different lamentations for the past.Press for Ellipsis One:Spracklands stories combine narrative energy with affecting compassion for her troubled characters...
