TEN SORRY TALES. Illustrated by David Roberts

London: Faber & Faber, (2005). Dave Roberts. First edition. Hardcover. 12mo. This copy is signed by the author on the title page. A strange beast: a book of bones and stones, of vengeful hermits and wayward hearses, of junior Rip Van Winkles and resurrectionists. From the fainlty weird to the fiercely eccentric, and from the everyday to the surreal, the stories read like cautionary tales and modern-day fables and the characters make for peculiar but exquisite company. By turns funny, gothic, moving and sad, this collection bears testimony once again to one of the most imaginative and original writers at work today. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #13953
