Theo: A Novella

From the bestselling author of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, a haunting novella that introduces one of the most memorable characters from Torday's novel Light Shining in the Forest. John Elliott is the recently appointed vicar of St Joseph's - a dilapidated church with a congregation of sixteen. Then Theo, a child at his wife Christine's school, starts to exhibit strange marks on his hands and feet that vanish almost as soon as they have appeared. What has produced these marks - and why has the previous vicar of St Joseph's ended up in a psychiatric hospital?
