This collection of short stories, in settings ranging from the Peruvian Andes to cosy suburbia, explores such themes as weeding, selecting and discarding, whether it is a lonely road-sweeper who befriends a schoolgirl and is "moved on", or a country cottage where hordes of rats must be exterminated. Lisa St Aubin de Teran won the Somerset Maugham Award for her first novel, "Keepers of the House" and the John Llewelyn Rhys Memorial Prize for "The Slow Train to Milan".
