Ten daring stories from 'a writer who seems capable of anything' (Guardian), the Booker Prize-shortlisted Philip Hensher
Backdrops vary in this collection of stories from the author of The Northern Clemency - from turmoil in Sudan following the death of a politician in a plane crash, to southern India where a Soho hedonist starts to envisage the crump and soar of munitions. Each story, regardless of location, reveals a great writer at the peak of his powers.
