The nature of truth in art, and most particularly in fiction, is reconsidered in the guile of a conspiratorial domestic with attitude, fallen arches and an aversion to household appliances which complements perfectly her inability to consider orthotics or the ministrations of a podiatrist.

This collection of stories is wide-ranging and told from the viewpoints of very different characters. One thing they have in common is the skilled use of language. The stories leave you unsure of what is real and what is in the character's imagination. From a middle-aged man who escapes his domestic issues by moving up to his roof, to a man who finds comfort and a new motivation is his aging parents' collection of books. From a woman who is driven to make sculptures to a woman who uses the debris from a life she hates to make beauty. A very interesting collection.
