Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The title story of this collection, "Talking about It," presents two friends, George and Michael, meeting ritually in a pub every night after a game of squash. While George recounts his increasingly extravagant sexual experiences, Michael listens on, meditating on how to redeem his uneventful life. But one day, the tables turn, and Michael finds a way to transfix his friends attention with a very interesting story….Whether describing the simmering warfare in an Italian condominium or the problems and pleasures of adultery, these stories reveal Tim Parkss deeply felt preoccupations with the inner workings of the human psyche and the dynamics of human relations. Tim Parks is the author of eleven novels, including Judge Savage, as well as travel memoirs, essays, and translations of Italian writers. His most recent work of nonfiction is Medici Money: Banking, Metaphysics and Art in Fifteenth-Century Florence.

Synopsis:

Collected here for the first time are the best from Tim Parks's short fiction. They span his entire literary career and is enriched by new stories written specifically for this publication.
