This collection of short stories includes the tale of a court case to determine the fate of Sandy, a family's smelly dog, and the story of an old man who gives new meaning to "speaking through your bottom".
A strange and startling new collection from this great teller of fantastic tales. Just a taste - Jason keeps his dead mother's hat as a memento and is fiercely possessive of it, taking it with him to the wildlife sanctuary where his father lives. His father gives him a gruelling task that results in a terrible choice - the hat will save a life and reveal an astonishing truth. In another story, there's a court case to determine the fate of Sandy, the family's smelly dog, and an old man gives new meaning to "speaking through your bottom". Then, when is kissing not kissing? The distinction gets blurred for Jeremy after he buys the love of his life a guppy for her birthday.
