About Each Day A Small Victory

Pulp Fiction meets Wind in the Willows!” Rural Noir a new genre from Can of Worms:

Each Day a Small Victory contains dateline dispatches from what to passing motorists is a lay-by on an English country road but to the indigenous inhabitants is more like a war zone.

These monthly bulletins of a furred and fanged community describe how they survive with and on each other, recording the differing threats and triumphs that the year brings and the resilience, patience and humour required to get through it.

“All Quiet on the Western Front – with fur!”

Each Day a Small Victory portrays in unfettered language all the drama, beleaguered optimism, muttered jokes and clenched terror that inform the survival and otherwise of its wide cast of characters. Most of them looking over their shoulders. All of them on borrowed time.
How they manage to live alongside each other and how they do it right next to a busy and indifferent human world is a day to day struggle with an entirely different perspective to ours. It’s a struggle constructed of hope, chaos, violence and all kinds of surprises. Some of them pleasant. Most of them lethal.
