Thirteen extraordinary stories by the author of The Wolf and Taurus

An album of thirteen short stories. An invitation to embark on a journey: from modern urban London, to a river in Africa, to world war, to the near and not-so-near past, to death and the ultimate state.

Joseph Smith’s third book, Finally My Ambulance, is a flow of fiction, powerful stories that stand alone, but are interconnected in theme and tone; voices from the author of The Wolf and Taurus, voices in human form (mostly), still fierce in directness and purpose, laced with playful cruelty, originality, and ultimately the possibility of compassion.

With his first two books Joseph Smith showed himself to be a writer of astonishing power and originality. Now he has written another unique work, emerging hungrily from the darker woods of contemporary fiction.
