Fireman Flower and Other Stories





A collection, Sansom's first, of assorted highly peculiar pieces in various genres. The dust jacket notes that "Interspersed with these fables are several more realistic stories, some essays in pure fantasy, and one shorter description of actual fire-fighting experience, The Wall." Sansom himself describes "The Wall" as an allegorical tale in which real events are recounted without exaggeration but in which the behaviour of the characters is invented.
