I’m not normally a fan of short story collections but an exception can always be made for the excellent writing of William Boyd. This is a good deal more conventional and accessible than the later collection ‘Fascination’ and I enjoyed it a lot more. Largely about sex (or a quest for it), the stories have a beginning, middle and an end, and are easy to understand. In some cases too easy – I was sure I must be missing something profound. I am constantly amazed by the breadth of this author’s range – from a washed up Hollywood child star to a bumptious RAF pilot to a girl working in the circus, he gets inside all their heads. Impressive stuff.
