Following his debut collection, The Red Man Turns to Green, Dickson Telfer returns with this fresh offering of dark and comical short prose about every- day life. Join a 92-year-old man in his quest for peace. Place yourself in front of a class from hell. Be surprised by your home town. Discover the unsettling world behind the curtain of television. Look dead fish in the eye. Traipse your way through litter and text messages. Bark with joy. And don’t let anything stop you enjoying refrigerator cake.
