Tim Thornbourne, successful in business but not in marriage, retreats to the country to grow gourmet and largely forgotten fruit. In time his orchard would become a Mecca for foodies and he, Tim Thornbourne, would be The Man Who Rediscovered the Medlar. But the last thing he expected was for the orchard to become a cooperative venture. Moving and surprising fiction from an author described by World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer as "Rapacious, intelligent and witty".

Write something clever about yourself revolts me. The higher a writer's personality grows, the more it stunts the offspring. Besides, Crandolin was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award, and has no such scruples. C loves being looked at and into. So do open C up, and you can also find out something about yourself. Do you, for instance, prefer to be commanded, or to crack the !s?

And just for joy, Crandolin recommends: Happiness=Soviet ice cream
