Tariq wished he'd kept in shape. Overseeing four car dealerships and a chain of garage-workshops, with his Borough Council and Planning Committee responsibilities on top, left him little time for going to the gym. There was a gym at the Council Offices, though, or maybe he could start jogging to work. He doubted he'd be able to outrun anyone these days.
"Here we all are," Jim continued. "A slightly different reunion to the one we were expecting. Walter, why don't you enlighten us on why you've brought us all up here?"

A SERIES OF ORDINARY ADVENTURES:
A wander down a country pathway, a cruise vacation in the Mediterranean, a school reunion, a sandwich eaten in the park – in the stories of Stevie Carroll, the mundane becomes tantalizingly magical. A footballer’s mistress gets more than just an apartment when her lover tries to keep her in style; a rock-and-roll bass player finds out that second chances aren’t all they’re cracked up to be; something sinister lurks beneath the trappings of a travelling carnival.
