An atmospheric collection of 5 stories, all with vivid characterisation and a strong sense of place. Three of the stories included in this collection feature the character Jim Skaife, who has appeared in the author's earlier works. In 'Tracking' we see him as a young boy in a northern town, exploring friendships and the dark, bombed-out slums. In 'The Wooden Ship' we return to Jim's infancy and a unloved gift given by a German POW. The eponymous story 'Kharshouf' features our central character as he reminisces about his time in Alexandria - an experience he has shared with the author. Jack is influenced by writers as diverse as Graham Greene and Wilkie Collins. A sequence infused with a northern ambience, a strong setting and the characters battle against adverse circumstances and survive.
