4 Extra Debut. An unexpected and clever take on the old myth, putting Beowolf's wife and daughters centre stage. Read by Siobhan Redmond.

Michele Roberts explores the old myth of Beowolf from a new perspective, offering a take on the story which puts the wife and daughters of the legendary hero centre stage. With the monster Gren Dell sporting a name tape lovingly sewn on by his mother, Ms Dell, and a tragic misunderstanding leading to all the bloodshed, the old story takes on an enjoyably feminist, if no less heroic turn. The story is taken from Michele Roberts new collection, Mud: Stories of Love and Sex.
