About this product
- DescriptionHow would your wife react if you came home with the face of someone else? How would you continue to look at your own life? What would you do? Considered one of Walter de la Mare's finest occult stories, this darkly thrilling tale tells the story of Lawford, a dull suburban man who accidentally falls asleep on a grave and wakes up possessed by the spirit - and face - of somebody else. Deunced by his family and friends as an impostor, Lawford's struggle to free himself of this possession leaves him a thoroughly changed man. Gripping and poignant, THE RETURN encompasses domestic trauma, unrequited love and philosophical reflection.
