"Remember You're a One-Ball!"

by Quentin S. Crisp
Release date: 2010
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: horror, mainstream

Ramsey Blake's first job as a teacher takes him back to the secluded village where he grew up. There he begins to remember the strange world of childhood and comes to realise that the adult world is equally as strange. At the centre of everyday life he discovers a nightmarish game of power and manipulation and is forced to choose sides. He is about to receive the ultimate object lesson in human cruelty. From the author of Morbid Tales, Shrike, and All God's Angels, Beware, "Remember You're a One-Ball!" is - in its recognition of the suffering of outcasts, of the ugly and the forgotten - a work of great compassion.
