In Stone Children Britain’s love – and usage – of the Continent is laid bare. A couple eat their way through France and are overcome by greed; an ashes-scattering goes terribly wrong; a house is haunted by pain and abuse.

Through each powerful tale we follow, mesmerised, moving through time and across continents, as the flaws and greed of humanity are exposed with extraordinary skill and wit.
