A GRANTA BEST OF YOUNG BRITISH NOVELIST 2023
A NEW STATESMAN BOOK OF THE YEAR
LONGLISTED FOR THE DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE

The new collection from a literary star - five achingly tender, innovative and dazzling stories of (dis)connection.

From Wales to Croatia to the depths of the ocean, these five achingly tender stories of (dis)connection are bursting with emotional vulnerability. A child attends his first football match, buoyed by secret magic; a young seahorse grapples with grief and loss; a troubled young man gets his birthday teeth. Strikingly original and wincingly humane, Open Up seeks to find grace, hope and benevolence in the churning tumult of self-discovery.

Praise for We Don't Know What We're Doing:

'Heart-hurtingly acute, laugh-out-loud funny, and one of the most satisfying collections I've read for years.'
ALI SMITH, Guardian 'Books of the Year'
'Masterly. . . marvellous grace and wit.' PHILIP HENSHER
'That tonic gift, the sense of truth - the sense of transparency that permits us to see imaginary lives more clearly than we see our own'. The tonic comes in large doses in Thomas Morris's debut short-story collection.' Irish Times
'Morris's fresh, direct writing style feels brand new.' Metro
'Radiant' Independent
