Resumen:

""The Laying On of Hands" is Bennett at his best in this funny and mischievous satire about a society memorial service for a rather special masseur, who has died at a tragically young age in Peru." "In "Father! Father! Burning Bright" Bennett writes with tragicomic insight about a son's vigil at his father's deathbed, where their lifelong battle continues to the end. With his pared-down and deceptively simple prose style, Bennett unflinchingly describes the random thoughts and haphazard conversations of the family members waiting in the hospital as they face life and death." "In "Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet" a podiatrist shows a lonely, unmarried department store clerk that there's more to life than looking after her brother. Part of the award-winning and critically acclaimed Talking Heads series, "Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet" was described in the New York Times as both "touching" and "hilarious.""--BOOK JACKET.
