Hasiwriters-Back-25

This book is alive with places, people and objects – some familiar, some strange, some like nothing you’ve known in your wildest dreams. A motorway, a hospital ward, the ‘forgotten under-ways’ beneath a library, an air-raid shelter, a ghost train, a kitchen table. We see the prizewinning Victoria sponge at a village fete, and take a tour of a museum of typewriters and dumb waiters; there’s an elegy to the lost radios of youth, and a glimpse of a long marriage, warts and all. Some of the pieces take us on extraordinary journeys to different points in space and time, to other realities, to the brink of death and even beyond. Voices rise and fall, weaving together, from the warmth and domesticity of a conversation between father and daughter to a surprisingly humorous chat with the Grim Reaper.
