In these twelve stories that unfold over a few hours or a weekend or five decades, adults deceive themselves about their motives - greed, desire for control, jealousy, fear, ambition. With unflinching realism, reminiscent of William Trevor, Cynthia Flood exposes the failings of the human heart and with a marvellous unsentimental brutality leaves many a character unredeemed.
