‘Then there is a breath of wood-strawberries, a burnt aroma of coffee, the silk-sweet innocence of vanilla, the spice of ginger, the ice-green tang of lime. The waiter lowers his platter to the table and places it before Clara ...’

Innovative and yet masterfully controlled, sensuous and brilliant, Ice Cream is a memorable collection of stories which range from Victorian tragedy to the tale of a dinner lady’s love for a Polish teacher, from the death of a lighthouse keeper’s wife to the birth of babies from the Superstork catalogue.
