A short story for radio by ROBERT FORREST
Read by David Hayman
'This is not a ghost story. All the people, with or without names, are real, all the longings and lunacies are held within actual flesh and natural years. The lovers are real, as are the embittered marriage partners, as you are. You're listening silence is real, and all the voices are real.'
