is the next in our selection of short stories from Louise Stern's debut collection.
In this story sculptures about the voice and silence belonging to a client give Christian, a window cleaner, pause for thought.
What sets Christian apart is that like Stern herself he is deaf, and reveals a world that is at times unfamiliar and hard to grasp, but one that at the same time is instantly understood.
Alan Warner says: "An amazing debut.
Vibrantly perceptive, gentle, funny and profound."
