The Amphibians - Michael Gifkins
- Unit Price
Stories which evoke brilliantly the sun-drenched hedonism of the French Riviera.
Smoke hangs in great palls over the burning hinterlands, but it is their inner fires with which Michael Gifkin's characters must contend. Dazzled by the powerful glitter of the Mediterranean, they remain alive to what must yet befall them.
Michael Gifkin's new collection reveals people caught between two modes of existence. Whether swept up in nets of political intrigue, asserting their independence from the tired formulae of conventional relationships, or escaping into the mysteries of solitude, the characters evolve restlessly towards a future about which the reader scarcely dares to guess.
