Over & Under is a collection of naughty and wicked short stories compiled by best friends, Maude & Mabel under the guiding light of creators, Peter & Paul. Spurred on by Mabel’s new work project, the indomitable pair of fortysomethings reach out to their eclectic group of friends: Cleo and Donald, Miss Lash and Madam Li, Cleo Pushkin and the Count to post their weird and wonderful tales. On the way the reader is treated to a host of bizarre incidents, terrible dilemmas and comic friezes. How will Kateryna woe Shevshenko? Will the Count elude confession on his death bed? Can a true Scot really appreciate a holiday in the Med? How will we grow old? Gracefully or with a bottle in our hands? Of course Maude & Mabel just have to add their very own take on each story as burgundy’s finest ebbs and flows. Over & Under is the perfect companion for dull journeys and lazy days by the pool. With postcard images to accompany each story, it is the ideal book for a Christmas stocking or a friend's birthday treat, and just the thing for the book club whose members cannot quite bring themselves to finish their weighty tomes. “A luminous bit of life delicately piled on prose platters” – Jay Parini, Author of Benjamin’s Crossing and Empire of Self, a life of Gore Vidal.
