A young lover presents a ring found on a French beach to the girl of his dreams, but doesn t appreciate its history and value. Meanwhile, in Oxford, the Bodleian Library is mysteriously empty, whilst one of the dons very unwisely turns to writing fiction, and becomes a bestselling author. And in yet another tale, a cruel ending brings the absurdity of death into sharp focus. All of the stories in this collection focus on life s ironies and absurdities and are told with Stewart s usual wit and wisdom, with due attention to detail.
