Five Wedding Dresses
Monday 17 August
7:45pm - 8:00pm
BBC Radio 4
As frothy and marshmallowy as the wedding-day dreams of little girls, these gorgeous stories by Katie Hims are tailor-made for the season of romance. At their centre is the nuptial gown, a flimsy garment weighed down with so much symbolism and expectation. Hims has hand-stitched these stories to perfection - each is discrete yet has its proper, satisfying ending in Friday's tale, set in a charity shop where the circle is completed. It begins on Monday with a woman who loves the way she looks in her wedding dress so much, she won't take it off. Ever. All are written in staccato sentences, with very few stretching to more than eight words, but it is that very brevity that makes them deceptively acid and whack a punch. Like taking a big bite of candyfloss and ending up with a mouthful of lemon drops.
