Book Description Secker & Warburg, London, 1993. Illustrated Card Covers. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. THE CHARACTERS in Dilys Rose's remarkable stories are all standing on the edge of things: looking out at escape and a possible happiness, or looking down at lost chances, dashed hopes and a life gone by. A British tourist in Morocco takes a step too far in her attempt to cross the cultural divide; a psychiatric patient challenges his doctor to re-negotiate their roles; three young American women meet on a heath until the men in their lives disrupt, then destroy the friendship. With her range of voices and unerring ear for speech, Dilys Rose deftly describes these lives in crisis - characters caught between conflicting desires, catching a glimpse of other worlds besides. Whether they are stories of domestic routine or brushes with exotic strangers, each carries the charge of personal drama and each is told with the understated grace and accuracy of a born writer.178 pages clean and tight.
