Souls in the Twilight

Beaufort Books  (October 2018)

As the lights that have guided us go out, people begin to wander in the twilight, seeking their place of belonging. In these stories, set in recent times, but before the blinding glare of social media, Roger Scruton describes the remembered landscapes of people who are not where they belong, and not quite where they wished to be.

With unfailing lightness of touch Scruton portrays characters who cannot let go of the past: Yusuf, set on a path of revenge that bears no relation to his teenage life; Bill who wanders the world in his imagination but cannot leave his suburban living room; Sarah, whose insane mission to save the Lebanese Christians brings disaster to the only person she loves; Veronica, whose determination to look the truth in the face wraps her young life in deceptionâall of them lost to their surroundings and yet touchingly seeking a home in them. For lovers of the short story these exquisite pictures of modern people will be cherished for their insight and poetic drama.
