Six delightful stories of books, gastronomy, (lack of) sex, death and miscommunication. I laughed out loud, and salivated.

Obsolete national stereotypes may offend those reading in a modern spirit.

Cover by Val Biro.

Six stories:
Two I'd go back to: The Public School Education (old friends meet in Venice) and The Havoc of Havelock (reading Havelock Ellis in a Bournemouth hotel).
Two I enjoyed until the end: The Michelin Man (dubious goings on in a French hotel), The Entrance (Gothic horror afflicts an antiquarian book dealer).
Two which were fun to read once: The Picnic (the family goes on a beach picnic - the weakest story in the book) and The Maiden Voyage (the family goes on a Mediterranean cruise).
