Worm on a hook - Tyler Keevil

The second episode of 'Underground: Tales for London' is a funny, wince-inducing family caper along the central line. A careless father walks his toddler into a pillar while rushing for a train, then faces embarrassment and desperation as they try valiantly to find a hospital.


Tyler Keevil is the award-winning author of three novels and lectures in creative writing at Cardiff University. His latest novel, No Good Brother, is available now.


Underground: Tales for London features original short stories by London-loving authors from across the world. Each story, written by a Borough Press author, will be available to Evening Standard readers as a free podcast, from standard.co.uk
