only when the sun shines brightly cover

Magnus Mills caught the limelight when he became the first bus driver to be short-listed for the Booker Prize.

His novel: 'The Restraint of Beasts' went on to sell over 30,000 copies and has been translated into 16 languages.

This is his first collection of short stories.

One of Aesop's Fables tells the story of a wager between the sun and the wind to see which can succeed in removing a traveller's heavy coat. The wind tries first, but however hard it blows it fails to make any progress because the traveller simply buttons his coat even tighter than before. Only when the sun shines brightly does he finally remove it, and the wind roars away in a bad temper.
