A Present of an Orange is a collection of twenty-four distinctive and entertaining new stories from Seymour Cresswell. Drawing on his own experiences, Cresswell covers everything from his love/hate relationship with the legal profession and the vicissitudes of parenthood to his lifelong passion for drama and his love of sailing. Each story is delicately woven to reveal a unique perspective on an eventful life and the colourful characters who have populated it. Peppered with wry humour and often poignant or thought-provoking, these stories explore life’s quirks and twists, its highs and lows, and show us that our experiences can be at once both personal and universal. A Present of an Orange will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
