This is an incredible story exploring the relationships between Art and his neighbour, his neighbour's wife and his neighbour's step-son. Set in a series of titles, the voice of the narrator offers a filmic quality and I can easily imagine watching this story played out on screen. The initial sense of security is soon squashed by the proclamation 'but, as we know, into each paradise there is likely to slither a viper'. Fantastic!
