Ghosts, cold rooms, bowling shenanigans ...is that really your wife? In Edenglen retirement home there is plenty of time to sit, think and then talk about whatever is on your mind. Usually a thought is triggered by something in the past and, of course, a memory is a great reservoir of stories to share. The Edenglen 100 is a collection of such short stories; residents sitting around telling each other strange tales that crop up every w and again when conversation ignites an event. In a thoroughly engaging style Geoffrey Tate examines the foibles that affect us all - fear at what goes 'bump in the night', what to choose for a Christmas gift, marrying for gain, romance as a youth in Italy...The Edenglen 100 is a forgiving look at peccadilloes and a welcome addition to any bookcase of short stories.
