The City, Paperback


Clair wants to be kissed - but not now - and certainly not by her husband.

Chris wants to celebrate his new job by driving into the oncoming traffic.

Jenny arrives to complain about the screaming children - but the garden's empty, and the key to the playroom's disappeared.

Just what strange game is being played here? Three characters fight to make sense of a surreal and collapsing world.
