A young couple are destroyed by the simple temptations of the ideal home- a shy Italian ends up in a strangers hospital room when he rings a telephone number left in his back pocket- after a late-night excursion to Hampstead Heath- Stalins daughter changes the life of a Cambridge painter with the gift of a fridge- and a German police officer spends a day posing as a terrorist, discovering new possibilities within herself.

In this collection of thirteen stories, discrete and contained lives brush up against each other. With unerring precision, Hensher focuses on the small moments when lives alter, his characters enacting their quiet tragedies in rooms and streets which have the crystal clarity of dreamscapes and where banality can assume almost operatic proportions.
