A Series of Ordinary Adventures
A wander down a country pathway, a cruise vacation in the Mediterranean, a school reunion, a sandwich eaten in the park - in the stories of Stevie Carroll, the mundane becomes tantalizingly magical. A footballer's mistress gets more than just an apartment when her lover tries to keep her in style; a rock-and-roll bass player finds out that second chances aren't all they're cracked up to be; something sinister lurks beneath the trappings of a travelling carnival. Richly peopled with characters you might meet in the shop around the corner, yet haunted by glimpses of something entirely otherworldly, A Series of Ordinary Adventures will transport you from the streets and lanes of England to a place where imagination is only the beginning. Magical realism mixes with subtle horror and heartfelt romance in a collection of stories that will captivate and transform you long after the final page.
