The Story Behind the Story

Robert Raymer is sharing how each of his short stories in Lovers and Strangers revisited came to be written. So far he's written about On Fridays and The Future Barrister.

This is essential reading for anyone who wants to know where story ideas come from, and there are few writers more generous in sharing their process than Robert.

As a sneaked in aside for short fiction lovers, can I point you in the direction of the Guardian website where there is some excellent new Summer fiction by Chris Ware, William Boyd, Alice Sebold, Julian Barnes, and Tessa Hadley?

Thanks Sharon. The On Fridays' link doesn't seem to work but The Future Barrister does, and from there, the next entry is On Fridays, so there you are! Robert
