    Parks’s highly entertaining tenth novel (published in England in 1995), a sequel to his Juggling the Stars (1993), continues the outrageous misadventures of Englishman-in-Italy Morris Duckworth, an antihero who bears more than a passing resemblance to Patricia Highsmith’s “Talented Mr. Ripley.”

    by: Tim Parks

    Publisher: pHesperus Press

    Book Description

    This first collection of 15 stories, drawn from Parks’s entire career, is both informed and cramped by the subject which gave one of his most vivid novels its title: adultery.

    That’s also the subject implicit in the title of the opening story, in which two married men talk about their very different extramarital affairs: sobersided Mic ... more
