Synopsis

An exhilarating new collection of stories by the author of Richard & Judy-bestseller `Notes from an Exhibition', combining wit and poignancy to illuminate experiences both common and uncommon.





Love (and loathing) within families is dissected - a father makes an unexpected discovery about his son which is too hard for him to cope with. A son wreaks revenge through the power of cookery. Three generations of the same family gain freedom through the years in a once-despised caravan. A bored wife finds happiness when an old lag teaches her the art of angling. A dog-training lesson with a puppy who hasn't grasped the meaning of `obedience' leads to the discovery of a murder.





Here too are music and silence - the sweetness and sadness of festivals, of the Church and of the control exercised by those in charge in small communities.





This tremendously enjoyable collection of stories has the same wit, tenderness and acute psychological observation as Gale's bestselling novels, including NOTES FROM AN EXHIBITION and the recent THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH. For Gale's many fans, GENTLEMAN'S RELISH is certain to be a real treat.
