This anthology of short stories was seeded from the one that gets place of pride as the title story. The lockdown that followed as a result of a hitherto unknown virus (Covid-19 of course!) created a fertile ground for more stories to spawn, and before long a collection waiting to fall into the hands of a willing reader was born.
The stories have a languid pace that allows plenty of room for subtlety, but they don’t fall into a specific genre or theme. Some have an essential thread of humour running through them, while others pack in a pleasant element of surprise. And some may leave a hint of an uneasy aftertaste. These, the writer recommends, are best relished like an exotic aperitif! Bon Appetit!
