Synopsis
In this first novel, Dr Henry (Henrietta) Metcalfe falls for a hitch-hiker, Rufus. A psychiatrist and a teacher, both are intent on concealing their true identities.

This is a brilliant little book. A very slender quick read and very worthwhile.

I've been looking forward to this one because Patrick Gale is one of my favourite writers. Hope I won't keep it too long. Thank you lellie for including me in your ring.

What can I say about this book? Strange and unbelievable but quite gripping. I love Patrick Gale's style and I wasn't disappointed by this book at all except that the ending left me wondering a bit. A lot of 'what ifs?' but perhaps that's not a bad thing.

I will PM kerriou (although I think I have her address already) and, hopefully, it will be on its way on Wednesday.

Thank you so much lellie for including me - I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Finished this yesterday and really enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing, lellie. I shall definitely read more of Patrick Gale's novels in future.

Cross-patch is eagerly awaiting this book so I shall post it off to her tomorrow.

That man, Patrick Gale, is so talented. This is a short voyage through 3 lives and I'm not sure where they're going to but I'm left with a vivid sense of their presence. Strong, wayward personalities are his strong-point living in a world that is alien to me but so very believable. Great stuff.

I'm sorry I was not very quick reading this, but life and jury service got in the way. I may need Henry's help to cope! Thank you lellie and kerriou for making this one available and getting it to me.

I intend to run a ring for Ease in the New Year.

Received this in the mail today along with another ring, I have two rings ahead of this one and hope to have it on its way to Chantie by the beginning of February. Thanks to cross-patch for sending this to me and including the lovely postcard. Thanks to lellie for including me in this ring.

I just finished this one, I enjoyed it. It was a little different than what I was expecting. I'm going to look for more by this author. I've already contacted Chantie and she has asked to be skipped and I contacted lellie who doesn't want it back. So in the next couple weeks or so, I'll be offering this as a Ray or RIF (if I can't find it on anyone's Wish List).
