About this book:

This collection of short stories by Dilys Rose is chiefly concerned with exploring the human spirit, through acute observation of human behaviour and detailed imagery.


Praise for Rose's other work:

The shining writing leaves an after gleam in the mind, a lasting resonance in the ear.  The Scotsman on War Dolls

The stories have a steely rectitude and an uncompromising determination to face down humiliation and inequality - economic, moral and compassionate.  The Guardian on Red Tides

A writer to watch.  Sunday Telegraph

Dilys Rose can be compared to Katherine Mansfield in the way she takes hold of a life and exposes all its vital elements in a few pages.  Times Literary Supplement on Our Lady of the Pickpockets
