Reprint. Originally published: 2000.

This beautiful, melancholy ghost story will captivate every discerning reader; Alexander Cleave, actor, has left his career and his family behind and banished himself to his childhood home.

He wants to retire from life, but finds this impossible in a house brimming with presences, some ghostly some undeniably human.

Memories, anxiety for the future and more particularly for his beloved but troubled daughter, all conspire to distract him from his dreaming retirement.

This humane and beautifully written story tells the tragic tale of a man, intelligent, preposterous and vulnerable, who in attempting to bring the performance to a close, finds himself travelling inevitably towards a devastating denouement.
