    DescriptionIt is the end of the summer. The tourists have already gone, and now the sun is abandoning the Lake District's damp valleys. Only a lone camper remains, enjoying the quiet. He plans to stay just long enough to prepare for a trip to the East. But then the owner of the campsite asks him to paint a fence and he innocently obliges. Soon other odd jobs pile up until little by little he becomes ensnared in the ominous 'out-of-season'.

    Review quote
    'Understatedly surreal, deadpan gothic, Mills is a master of the uncanny ... Such a fresh fictional voice' Esquire 'Mills is a master of the cliffhanger and can make even the most deadpan behaviour compelling and funny... A deliciously sly comic fable' Financial Times 'Absorbing, darkly worrying and very, very funny' The Times 'Mill's great strength is in mixing quiet amusing amusements with a deeper feeling of malice' Guardian
