Log-in for full text

This chapter traces the development of Jon McGregor’s writing up to the publication of his collection of short stories This Isn’t the Sort of Thing that Happens to Someone Like You (2012). It establishes McGregor’s deep interest in the resonance of the everyday and the overlooked, and examines the ethical importance of mutual recognition and the import of the other in his writing. McGregor’s fiction always demands the gaze of an often disinterested world both as an act of charity, and as a statement of human connectedness.
