From Cyprus to the Hebrides, from London to Prague-Roger Scruton's stories cover a wide geographical area and yet a wider psychological terrain. Often experimental, but always controlled, the writing propels each story irresistiblly towards its climax, creating unforgettable characters and the atmospheric situations in which their destinies are revealed.
Truth and lies, trust and betrayal: these themes constantly recur through Roger Scruton's stories, each one of which makes its own vivid claimon the reader's imagination. Whether comic or tragic, eerie or sublime, the narrative moves always at a compelling speed, and with a logic of its own. These are stories to be read and re-read.
