SHELL COLLECTOR, THE

Synopsis

A blind man spends his days roaming the beaches of Kenya collecting shells, classifying them by feeling their whorls, spines and folds in his fingers. A young woman discovers that she can explore the inner world of an animal’s mind by touching its freshly dead body. A remarkable collection of stories which illuminate both the riotous dangers of the natural world and the rocky terrain of the human heart.
