"The setting range from nineteenth-century Sweden and Russia to a suburban 'Barnet Shop', where the narrator measures out his life in haircuts, and a South Bank concert hall where a music lover carries out an obsessive campaign of revenge against those who cough in concerts. In 'Knowing French' a fiercely independent eighty-year-old begins a correspondence with an author - 'Dear Dr. Barnes' - that enriches both their lives. A woman reads elaborate recipes to her sick husband in 'Appetite'; a retired soldier in 'Hygiene' makes his annual trip to attend a regimental dinner, run errands for his wife and spend the afternoon with a tart called Babs."--BOOK JACKET.
