Pigeons fly us into the heart of the city to a little private space cut off by darkened gullies, the wing of a pigeon protruding dramatically, seeming to be a sign. The characters become obsessed with it. What answers will it give? Then we move on, pass through other spaces, follow the rest of the characters: the performers, tricksters and fantasists, the odd individuals and heroes and anti-heroes of legend, who conjure up other worlds for us. Our last performer, a street artist-escapologist handcuffed inside a sack ventures on his mythic journey through the dark, finally breaking free with a revelatory flourish. He asks us a fundamental question. Somehow we have moved full circle. What answer will we give?

Jay Merill is a short story writer with an ability to spin a good tale...(she) has a tremendous sense of humour and manages to retain empathy with this lost generation.(John Rety The Morning Star)
Merill’s range of literary form and accompanying style and tone is prodigious. (She)’s a brilliantly clever writer.(Judith Amanthis Tears in the Fence) About the Author:
Jay has just moved to a tree house in the centre of the centre and she has the feeling this will lead to a lot of creative output, because before, she was at the side of the centre and that's when she wrote the stories in this collection whereas before that, when she was in the outer crust, she went out compulsively every night and hardly wrote a thing.
