This is a collection of four short stories, dealing with have-nots and people who find difficulty expressing themselves in words - a mother talking about her eldest child, the female half of an elderly couple, an alcoholic sailor. The stories are moving and very effectively written - emotions are rarely stated explicitly, but are there in every line.
