Evangelista’s Fan – Rose Tremain

A lovely set of short stories from Rose Tremain. I particularly liked the opening and title tale of an Italian clockmaker who leaves Piedmont in disgust when the King declares the years 1789-1815 to never have existed, thereby wiping out the young man’s entire life. The final story, Over, stays with me to, as does the late in life crazy courage described in Bubble and Star.
