At the flea market, among the usual quantities of old books and chipped crockery, there are also to be found more curious objects: elegant agricultural tools, ancient brass bells — even evidence of a murder. Perhaps more curious still are the stallholders themselves: Bryn, who is not excessively interested in Napoleon; Trevor and Dan and their ‘Mystery Girl’; and Clive Pipton, ‘Dodgy Antique Dealer Extraordinaire!’, whose yellow clogs are proving a hard sell.
Drawn from only the briefest of interactions, all the voices of the flea market are here in these short, sweet, and often unexpectedly poignant stories.
