‘In The Murenger and Other Stories’, Jon Gower’s fifth collection of short fiction, he has unleashed a motley crew of rambunctious characters, who experience a variety of unfortunate situations, either due to their own destructive tendencies, to events beyond their control or to the vagaries of others. These unique stories are a melting pot of wild imagination and inventive language, conjured up with a drop of magic realism, a hint of the surreal and a soupçon of fable.’ - Madeleine d’Arcy, author of Waiting for the Bullet
