‘Some things never change in human dramas’ and for Alison Mode, the dwarf heroine of Sarah Guppy’s A Dwarf’s Tale, this truism will haunt her until past wrongs are put right.
Part socio-political commentary on the state of contemporary Britain and part magical fantasy, A Dwarf’s Tale follows Alison as she battles prejudice drawn by her stature and determines to win.
A juggling care worker. A bargain-obsessed shopper haunted by nightmares. A porn-hungry office playboy. All with the city of Edinburgh in common...
