Stolen Stories


Never, ever trust a writer. One minute you’re pouring your heart out over Bacardi Breezers, the tale of you and him, or you and her, the tears, the anguish, the pain. Next thing you know it’s all over the papers, the hilarious and best-selling tale of some twit who resembles you in every way except they have black hair and better music taste. But this is what writers do. They steal, they take, they lie. We feel there is no shame in this, quite the opposite. In order to celebrate this fact we have

complied an anthology of the finest ‘stolen’ stories, a collection of 16 tales from both established and eager, new thieves, all of whom have been forced to confess the source of their thefts.
