Rush, Christopher Peace Comes Dropping Slow , Edinburgh: Ramsay Head Press, 1990

Reprint [First 1983]. Paperback Pagination: vi, 172. This is the first paperback edition of Peace Comes Dropping Slow, Christopher Rush’s first book of short stories in which he explores the rich character of the East Neuk of Fife. There is no lack in these tales of that classical sense of horror and pity, of the macabre and the humorous; but there is also an urgent contemporary concern. Several stories reveal the hidden tensions which operate in these seaside villages and farms. If the sea is everywhere, so is religion, and the kirk steeples of the East Neuk stand out sharply above the graveyards whose stones have so much to tell. The entire collection finds universal themes emerging from local life.. Book: corners of covers a little bumped, VG, Jacket: n/a (Book ref. 3061 )  £ 8.00
