I Knew It In the Bath

The bathtub is the place where dreams and possibilities flow as easily as the tap water - if only they would go to plan. I Knew it in the Bath is a collection of absorbing short stories which show that no matter how we expect events to unfold, life has a way of confounding us. What will a woman do to save her friend? Do we really know when we're being watched? Why did Dora throw the iron through the window? What's the best way to take revenge on a cheating partner? Settle back for an engaging read through these humorous, sinister and thought-provoking stories, but try not to drop your book in the bath!

Reviews of I Knew It In the Bath

"Short Story Heaven"

"This is a beautiful, poignant and intense collection of short stories. Diverse and wide ranging, there is substance and sensitivity here that can’t help but move the reader. Linda has a truly individual voice that is at once mischievous, humorous and chilling. She also has a remarkable eye for detail and a gift for creating emotional depth. There is also a genuine understanding of human nature. Each story has its own world of acutely drawn characters that fly off the page. Subtle but powerful. Sad yet funny. Yearning and heartfelt. This is a writer who deserves to be read and reread. An outstanding, profoundly moving piece of writing."
