'A master class in the art of storytelling' Observer

This short story collection demonstrates the enormous range of Tremain's talent and imagination.


The teasing and brilliant title story, Evangelista's Fan , is set in a disturbing dreamlike version of Regency London, where a young italian clockmaker contrives a magical means, not only of repairing time, but also of unlocking the mechanism of sexual happiness.

Here is history - Agincourt as seen by the herald who rides between the two camps - alongside such contemporary issues as mortgage debt and medical error.

Here are stories set in Cornwall, Corsica, Nashville, Niagara and an unidentified city which conjures up any and every Western European capital.

Here are the obstinate dreams of the old and the passionate struggles of the young; here is heartbreak and humour; and here, above all, is love in its many and varied forms.
