"Foley and Moss are partners in a successful small business, making plaster pixies for the tourist trade.

Moss, the seemingly quiet one who supplied the capital for the venture, manufactures them. Barry Unsworth sets his scene magnificently - a Cornish village, Lanruan, thriving on specious tourism, and its local characters: Graham, the primitive painter; Bailey, the loud-mouthed Northerner who comes to Lanruan to make his fortune; Barbara, the nearest thing the village possesses to a bad girl; and above all Gwendoline, who inadvertently begins the rift in the partnership between Foley and Moss."--BOOK JACKET
