Inhaltsangabe: A bitter-sweet novel about an elderly butler and his dog. He is old and lonely and his little dog serves to remind him of his increasing age. He is master now, where once he served and owns the great house, which is empty - but peopled with his memories.

DJ now in clear protective sleeve. Brown cloth boards with bright red titling on spine. No ownership marks.190 pages clean and tight. Today is Jack Sadler's birthday. Or is it? He's not sure, doesn't care. It might be his last day or the beginning of a new chapter in his life. He must find the key to his old room. He knows the truth about his past lies there and somehow he must get in and confront it. But Sadler is old now, and lonely. His stiff-legged little dog is a companion of sorts, but serves also to remind him of the indignities of his increasing age and incapacity. His last years have been as empty as the house of which, through an odd stroke of fortune, he is now master where once he was servant. The past is there, though, vividly recollected. Sadler remembers Madge, with her rouged cheeks and her regrets; he remembers Vera, whose secret died with her; he remembers Torn, the awkward refugee from war-scarred London on whom he poured his pent-up store of love. This beautifully written, well constructed novel builds up the patterns of a strange sad past - of a lifetime spent "in service' Rose Tremain evokes an almost vanished way of life with complete fidelity, and tells Sadler's delightful story with candour, dignity and humour.
