Most of us have secret desires, wishes that some aspect of our lives could be better, or even just different. Sometimes those wishes can become so all-consuming that they become an obsession. And obsessions can be dangerous.In many of these storiesMoreMost of us have secret desires, wishes that some aspect of our lives could be better, or even just different.

Sometimes those wishes can become so all-consuming that they become an obsession. And obsessions can be dangerous.In many of these stories there is someone who has an obsession of some kind. One man cannot stop thinking about an attractive young woman he sees regularly at the railway station. An old man dreams of owning his own tractor. Another is a fitness fanatic and spends all his money on keep-fit equipment, much to the annoyance of his wife, because inevitably obsessions affect other people as well.

One man is a compulsive teller of hoary old jokes that drive his listeners mad. In a culture where barrenness is a disgrace, a woman longs for a child of her own.It often happens that when we finally achieve our wishes we find they are not what we wanted after all, and sometimes we are stuck with them!Occasionally obsessions are driven by fear- fear of memory loss, devastating to an actor, who relies on his memory to perform his part- fear of losing ones home due to circumstances beyond ones control.In this varied collection of short stories, drawn from the authors life in post war Britain, colonial life in Africa, and retirement in new Zealand, you will be touched and intrigued, as well as finding a few laughs.

Most of the stories have a surprising twist in the tail, and you will enjoy the subtle humour in many of them.
