1956 by Margaret Wilkinson,
New York, 1956: subtly interconnected through characters from the same family, these stories build a picture of particular worlds within New York of the Fifties.
Three of these stories were broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Wednesday 24 July 2002 under the collective title I Decided to Kill My Brother-in-law After Dinner. Reviewing the play for the BBC online website, John O'Byrne said: " ...what a great comedy writer is Margaret Wilkinson."
I Decided ... was The Radio Times Choice, and Pick of the Day in several broadsheets.
"In this assured debut radio play by Margaret Wilkinson, the cast, aided by some finely observed, often very funny, dialogue, get you right into their claustrophobic world from the start."
The Daily Mail Weekend Radio Choice
"Margaret Wilkinson's witty debut evokes beautifully summer in 1950's Brooklyn."
The Sunday Telegraph, Radio Choice
"A regular contributor to Mslexia, (she writes The Blank Page), Margaret Wilkinson's first collection of short stories, intense and noirish, will not disappoint."
