'The rope hung from top to bottom of his dream. The rope hung softly, saying nothing, doing nothing. Then the rope began to swing very softly, very gently ... Towards him'
The need to face your fears; the comedy of family life; the pressure of others' expectations... Intense experiences of childhood are vividly brought to life in this beautifully written collection of short stories by the author of Tom's Midnight Garden.
