Overview

With London in the grip of a heat wave, a man takes refuge from the scorching sun in a nearby tea shop, only to share his table with a stranger who seems determined to make conversation. Too polite to ignore him, he becomes his reluctant confidant, as harmless small talk gives way to dark memories. "Missing" is the first of three unsettling stories of guilty secrets, past hurts, and haunted lives from one of the foremost English writers of the 20th century. Remembered chiefly as a poet, and in particular for his visionary poem "The Traveller," Walter de la Mare (1873–1956) was also acclaimed as a writer of short stories.
