His stories are so resonant and frightening because they are totally original. They are about the recognisable world of private fantasy and nightmare - a world, despite our protestations to the contrary, we are all involved in - Observer

Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the seven stories in this collection engage and implicate us in the most fearful ways imaginable.

An in the course of a weekend with his teenage daughter, a guilt-ridden father discovers the depths of his own blundering innocence.
