Ninevah by Henrietta Rose-Innes to be a film

Blake Friedmann agency announces a film deal for Ninevah by Henrietta Rose-Innes

Henrietta Rose-Innes, winner of the Caine prize for African writing, is also – and you can probably guess by now, from how we select stories – a past contributor to New Short Stories. She has published several novels and short story collections. One of the stories in her collection Homing is also in Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 4.

Becoming Belle – Nuala O’Connor

For the second time today, I’m using the phrase “twice contributor to New Short Stories,” in this case for Nuala O’Connor who, it is fair to say, is one of Ireland’s foremost writers of novels and poetry, as well as short stories. She has published several short story collections and some of her stories can be found online, like this one from 2016: Storks by Nuala O’Connor in the Irish Times.

Angela Carter: Of Wolves & Women (BBC)

27 days left to watch on BBC iPlayer (UK only)

“Angela Carter’s surreal imagination produced some of the most dazzling fiction of the last century. Pioneering her own distinctive brand of ‘magic realism,’ works like The Magic Toyshop and Nights at the Circus cracked open the middle-class conventions of the postwar novel and influenced a new generation of writers.”

For short story lovers, it’s her collection “The Bloody Chamber” that hits home. But, of course, it’s always novels that get more attention.
