'A dancer in a wheelchair. A collector of corks. One woman seduced by a mountain and another by Freddo Frogs. A man who hears his dead wife's voice. A poet whose voice has disappeared. A photographer distilling grief in his lens. A sound designer stealing the sound of a room.
Inherited brings together nineteen stories about the gifts and burdens we inherit from the world or from those we love, and what we, in turn, leave behind. [From the publisher's website]
