Volume 3 includes Too Close to the Edge, the tale of a quiet retirement in the foothills of the Alps turned upside down; The Eskimo Solution, which combines the story of a struggling writer with excerpts of the crime novel he's writing, which will spill over into his own life; and Low Heights, in which a cantankerous retiree falls for his nurse and finds himself confronted with a man claiming to be his long-lost son ... but the family reunion is threatened by the vultures circling above.

Kennedy; 'Horribly funny ... appalling and bracing in equal measure' John Banville; 'A mixture of Albert Camus and JG Ballard' FT; 'Bleak, often funny and never predictable' The Observer; 'A brilliant exercise in grim and gripping irony, it makes you grin as well as wince.' Sunday Telegraph; 'Deliciously dark ... painfully funny' New York Times
