Waugh, the celebrated novelist, has written many beautifully crafted short-stories.
In this, A Perfect Day, written especially for the Travelman First Edition
series, Ellis, a seemingly ordinary man, is killed in a car crash. Celia,
his twin sister, comes to the funeral and is visited by a flood of haunting
memories which reveal the extraordinarily breathless tale of her brother's
life and the effect that he, and his wicked ways, had on her own peculiar
past. Teresa Waugh's latest novel A Friend Like Harvey is published by Gollancz
in June 1999.
