Reprint. [First: Same Year] From the cover: “It is 1986 in Cape Town and Elizabeth Curren is dying of cancer. Returning home from the doctor’s diagnosis she finds a drunken tramp at the bottom of her garden: Mr Vercyeil, her own Angel of Death. Vercueil, though, is more than simply a symbol of decay and dereliction; he becomes her silent companion and confessor as she tries to make her peace with the world.
