In the title story a man buys a ninety-nine year lease on an island and finds himself cast off in its timeless world; in ‘The Last Laugh’ a couple are confronted with uncanny spectral visions, and an eerie faceless laugh; in ‘The Fox’ two women maintaining a farm feel the dark shadows of war, and a cunning creature threatens to destroy their livelihood. The stories in this collection are about what the characters know and do not know – about themselves, one another, and the circumambient universe.
