The Fallen Curtain and Other Stories

A short story collection published by Hutchinson in


Here are eleven tales of haunting psychological accuracy: the gesture that betrays a parent’s madness, the childhood memory clouded with denial and the utterance that introduces the threat of violence in a situation as benign as a dinner date.

Instantly engaging and maddeningly addictive, The Fallen Curtain testifies to the enduring talents of a master of the genre.
