Story about four teenagers/children and a cupboard that taks back anything put in it to a former stage in its existence. A strange story, more about atmosphere than anything, but a beautifully effective one in my opinion. Lots of imagery that stays with me, and mythological allusions conveying the breadth and mysteriousness of time. The writing is neat and incisive, and I thought the characterisation was interesting - none of them were wholly likable, but they felt uniquely themselves and I would have liked to know more about them.
