Chosen by the author, this latest selection of stories includes 'Coming Home in the Dark', the inspiration for a new feature film. Owen Marshall is regarded as one of our finest living writers. His stories capture the imagination of readers and refuse to let go. From dark to funn...y, acerbic to warm, they probe our national psyche with clear-eyed insight. This selection from a long career includes stories chosen from thirteen previous volumes of short fiction. They range across New Zealand and venture overseas; they explore both cruelty and love; they look back to childhood and also capture the world we live in today. Full of unexpected turns, lyrical writing, wry observations and intriguing plots, the stories offer a provocative take on New Zealand. `I very much envy his ability to lay things down in such a way that each one has its natural weight and place, without any straining and heaving.' - Maurice Gee, Sport 'Owen Marshall has established himself as one of the masters of the short story' - Livres Hebdo, Paris
