Publisher's Summary

Writers short-listed for the Guardian 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize read their short-listed stories.

Collected here are the six best stories chosen by the judging panel of the Guardian 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize 2017.

In them you'll encounter a range of characters: an Indian soldier fighting for the British in WWII; a teenage girl fasting in a small London flat; an out-of-work dad in an urban playground; a woman cleaning the toilets in Hong Kong International airport; a wealthy Malaysian teenager in his last few days of school; and a septuagenarian arrested on New Year's Eve.

Read here by the writers themselves, these stories will move, entertain and surprise you - and give a tantalising taste of the future work we might expect from these talented writers.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I appreciate what these writers are trying to do which is write about things that people don't want to talk about and I know they are trying to open people's eyes to certain subjects but some of theses stories are boaring and repetitive. Sorry not for me.

    "mixed bag, worth a listen"

    The final story is excellent. Fresh story on playground parent discomfort and their awkward relationships.
