“A small glass bottle is filled with thick, yellowing liquid – something like melted butter. In amongst the clouding viscous, a jellied hand pushes from the inside. The fingers spread like an accidental spill.”
This short story compilation ranges from heart-warming comedy to ruminations on existence: from the bizarre to the eerily macabre. See weird and wonderful preserved exhibits in a dusty old museum, immerse yourself in the conversation at a dinner party, or step foot into Dr Grost’s office. This remarkable, thirteen-story collection, introduces a huge variety of engaging characters and showcases Ward’s trademark style and humour.
