A collection of stories by

A. L. Barker's debut short story collection, and winner of the first Somerset Maugham Prize. This fascinating and highly acclaimed debut collection by A. L. Barker instantly marked her out as a remarkable new talent. Each story describes a crisis in life; each reveals the impact of experience upon innocence, or vice versa. '[her] remarkable descriptive powers, her feeling for the exact word and the right combination of adjectives are the most satisfyingly applied to the evocation of landscape . . . Barker writes wih a subtelty and precision which are as delightful as they are rare.' Times Literary Supplement
