Adolescent sex in a Scottish boys' public school ... Oddballs on the seedy side of America ... Murder in a quiet Devon cottage ... Comical, ironical or lacerating - wit is the keynote of these stories, which include two early adventures from the career of Morgan Leafy, glorious anti-hero of William Boyd's prize-winning novel ‘A Good Man in Africa’.
‘His writing, with nods in the direction of Borges and Nabokov, combines violence, comedy and experiment … an impressively varied collection’ Time Out.
