"We are blowing one another to bits and the stars just watch. Whether we live or die, kill... or love... the stars just watch. We shall extinguish one another, but no one shall extinguish the stars."
Tonight four sit round a table playing cards. Tomorrow two leave to fight. Over an evening already fraught with tension, emotions run deep and life-shattering secrets threaten to escape.
A powerful novella from the author of FAG, Pride and Not Just a Boy.
Readers should note that this is a new version of the story previously released under the title Is it Her?
Praise for the story:
"A deep love story... marvellous, complex characters, and a tense atmospheric plot... I had to remind myself to breathe. The literary quality of the prose is exquisite and memorable."
"An electric atmosphere of tension and suspense... powerful drama... When the moment of awful revelation comes, the superb quality of the writing ensures that it is traumatic for all concerned, including the reader."
"... wonderful use of realistic dialogue, much of which put me in mind of Harold Pinter's writing..."
"Brilliant, emotional... Buy tissues."
