In this collection of essays, Coman ranges over a vast tapestry of experiences from ferreting rabbits, to the pleasures of reading the Odyssey and listening to church bells. Religion, philosophy, modern music, Freddie Ayer's 'amorous dalliances' and Chinese ghost stories - it's all here in this eclectic compilation. The essays will delight both the serious and the casual reader.
