Summary

From the author of The Underground Man and Five Boys comes a rare, dark and remarkable collection of stories. Ten Sorry Tales is a strange beast: a book of bones and stones, of vengeful hermits and wayward hearses, of junior Rip Van Winkles and resurrectionists. From the faintly weird to the fiercely eccentric, and from the everyday to the surreal, the stories read like cautionary tales and modern-day fables, as the world of adult experience meets that of the child's imagination. Two old spinsters dress up drowned men in their parlour. A cantankerous old horse steals buttons off children's jackets and keeps them in a special compartment in his stomach. These and the other characters make for peculiar but exquisite company. At turns funny, gothic, moving and sad, this collection bears testimony once again to one of the most imaginative and original writers at work today.
