AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Matthews finds a unity in the arrangement of stories in While the Billy Boils. The chronological nature of the stories, the use of rumour and the consistent use of time and distance are all elements that support the structure of the collection. Matthews concludes that the world of While the Billy Boils is "various and crowded", but it is a world "in which the whole undeniably loose undertaking can be regarded as hanging together".
