On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, David Wellbrook’s fourth book of short and not so short stories, Zoo, offers up an absorbing mix of twenty tales from humour to horror, to non-fiction and stand-out drama.
Having started his career writing on the Daily Mail, Wellbrook expertly cuts his wordcount down to the bone in his stories, whilst still ensuring that none of the nuance, action or climax of his narration is lost. Inspiration for the more amusing stories (which he confirms generally ring true to what happened) is pulled from his vast array of life experiences.
