|About the Book|
Opening this collection of stories is Namesake, described in The New Writer as the perfect carriage for the swirl of fun, surprise and wickedly witty allegory, which makes this a genuine joy to read. Absolutely superb-Phil Whitaker. The ten other stories are hopeful stories suggesting common decency can triumph over self-absorption-stories which rub shoulders with the shadows that make life a bit of an endeavour. So, in Bibis Bicycle, a man will work for ten years down a gold mine in order for people to say of his wife: Look! There goes Kibibi, she one hell of a lucky lady. Here is a collection of witty, joyous, and sensitive revelations about human behaviour written for the pleasures they will give, and the thoughts they may provoke.
