The Absent Therapist

by Will Eaves

Reading this was akin to playing a game of Pacman but without the pursuing critters. At first there is an ever changing narrative of sharp right angled jerks as one story - some as short as one line - veers off to another that is completely different. Like the game you become accustomed to these movements, but to the end they keep the reader on their toes.


You know you're among the remnants of the aristocracy when you accept an invitation to Sunday lunch in Deal and find yourself talking to a florid character who eats with his mouth open and who, when you turn your ankle on his steps, produces from his 'cold store' a compress made of frozen squirrel.
