5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary people
I don't usually read short stories. i came to this volume because I was hooked on the characters from the Filth trilogy and wanted to know more. I was captivated by the parade of extraordinary people in the various stories. Extraordinary but completely believable.

I love Jane Gardam's novels and short stories and enjoyed the majority of the stories in this collection. However, a few didn't come up to her usual standard. But second-best Gardam is better than most other writers' best, so am not complaining!

I began reading this under the impression that it was a continuation of the "Old Filth" series, not realising that it was a selection of short stories on different topics. However, I enjoyed all the stories and thought they were cleverly crafted.

I did so much love Old Filth, The man in the wooden hat and old friends. However this book left me rather cold and I was glad when it was finished. It did nothing for me.
