Incest, murder, delusion, and a devastating, tragic humor mark these three novellas that Gwyn Thomas wrote in 1946: The Dark Philosophers, Oscar, and Simeon. In this book the grimly humorous philosophers gather in an Italian café in the terraces to tell the tragic tale of comeuppance and manslaughter that they engineer.


"As if Thomas Hardy met Damon Runyon over a loving cup of small beer." —New York Herald Tribune
