Summary
In 'The Strange Adventures of Mr Andrew Hawthorn' and the other stories in this collection, peculiar worlds of temptation, adventure or iniquity are perilously close at hand. Mr Hawthorn himself steps outside while his porridge cools and disappears for five years; a Glasgow grocer is shipwrecked and ultimately worshipped as a god; a young mathematician discovers an entirely new aspect of reality and becomes terrified by what he finds there; and an ageing sinner clings grimly, weakly, to a hard-won life of decency. In each, John Buchan demonstrates his abilities as a gripping writer of short stories. In his introduction, Giles Foden explores Buchan's innate fascination with sudden jeopardy and vanished comfort, and the themes of the will and fate in Buchan's work
