Make More Noise!


Nosy Crow has compiled a short story anthology to celebrate a century of women’s suffrage. Often, there is a slight disappointment in collections such as this, for not all the contributions are of the same quality. However, with ‘Make More Noise!’ every story is a winner; each draws the reader in and completely captivates with its theme and plot. Every story is different too; somehow you can hear the individual writer’s ‘noise’. The writer’s voice is clear. The message, the history, the learning are not hammered. Only two stories- by Sally Nicholls and Katherine Woodfine- relate directly to the inequality experienced a century ago. These are superb, really thought-provoking stories, each with subtle and new messages.

The other stories concern the achievements of women (Jeanne Willis), defying convention, or expectation, role ambitions or reputation.

Make More Noise!’ is a riveting, beautifully written, assembled collection that celebrates the female experience. Bookwagon is proud to include this title in our shop.
