A reading from Ms Fitts Lament by Angela Fitt


The extract is read by Claudia Loveland.

“What am I doing in Cornwall

What am I doing down here

I’m ten years older than when I arrived and I’ve only been here a year


What am I doing in Cornwall

What on earth am I doing down here

I’m slow

And I’m dreary

And teary

And weary

And two hours drive from IKEA


And the man in my life simply loves it”

Ms Fitt’s Lament can be found in the short story collection Cornwall: Misfits, Curiosities and Legends.

Claudia Loveland

Claudia Loveland writes short stories, in various shapes and formats. Her Cornish stories are set within the last century and explore the experiences of newcomers and returners: those who want to lose their history or redesign their future. Some might not want to be here at all.
She loves surprises and humour, though heartbreak often threatens.
