The stories in this collection by Salley Vickers all deal with psychological aspects of love - love given and withheld, love craved and lost, and love met and disappointed. Psychologically acute, sharply written in lucid and witty prose, these stories, set in Venice, Greece and Rome, take us into the complex geography of the human heart.

Another great collection of short stories again benefitting from her psychiatric perspective on human motivations and relatings. This collection, like “The Boy Who Could See Death”, also contains some supernatural themes – but Vickers successfully hints at the ways in which “supernatural” may just be our explanation of unexpected heightened human perceptions of others.
