In evading an ingratiating unofficial guide, a hapless backpacker seals his fate. A woman undertakes a pilgrimage to where her boyfriend died with another girl. A young man abroad resists returning home for crucial medical treatment. A summer worker is drawn into a menage a trois with a colleague and his boss. From the scorched hillsides of Morocco and heat of a Californian summer to the ferocity of the Spanish afternoon and discomfort of a Scottish heatwave, Wayne Price's characters sweat under the glare of both the sun and their author's forensic gaze. 'This is a heraldic collection. The short stories of Wayne Price are of both incandescent restraint and dynamic range; many of these seemingly quiet tales rise to that supreme level: namely some of the best short stories written anywhere in recent years.' Alan Warner, author of Morvern Callar, The Sopranos, The Man Who Walks and The Stars in the Bright Sky 'Wayne Price is one of the most impressive writers of his generation. Like Raymond Carver, he is as accomplished a poet as he is a short story writer, and the two disciplines complement each other perfectly. He has the poet's eye and ear allied to a gift for spare narrative, and that is a powerful combination. He is one of the few writers I know for whom the comparison with Carver is not fanciful - he really is that good, and this first collection marks the arrival of a major talent.' Alan Spence, author of Its Colours They Are Fine, The Magic Flute, Way to Go and The Pure Land
