A soldier on leave is confronted with the wounds of life left behind. An academic sees his certainties worn away by a researcher obsessed with facts. In a remote village a man grieving for his mother is stranded on the limits of memory. In this world beyond the streetlights a brother and sister’s playground is an empty, lethal railway; an archaeology team’s important find has something vital missing; and a convict on the run gets an unexpected welcome from an old cellmate. Cooks, lovers, gardeners and accountants jostle through a collection that provides an exhilarating trip into a restless, hard-edged world.
