‘There is nothing as sleep-giving as the shoulder and breast of a fat man ...’

Flesh brings comfort in the harsh, winterbound world of these compelling stories, while love is stretched to breaking-point. Tense, moving and mysterious, this collection explores the pain woven into human relationships, the ambivalence of love between parents and children, and the pleasures of sensuality.
