At the End of His Tether

Three stories are put together in this small volume. They may well be some of the best Geoffrey Bingham has written. Author of a number of volumes of short stories, he has selected these three tales to describe how man reacts or responds under heavy stress.
Whilst the stories are set in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp, yet the same principles of behaviour show themselves wherever human beings are subject to intense stress.
P.O.W. novels such as King Rat and Bridge Over the River Kwai describe self-centred and altruistic behaviour brilliantly. Bingham digs even deeper and comes up with valuable principles which interpret human beings as they are by nature.
Even so, the rich note of entertainment is not lost. Perhaps it is richer because of the writer's inbuilt analysis.

Geoffrey BINGHAM is well equipped to bring the truth to us through his story-writing, for he has been at this skill for over fifty years. He has a genius for discerning and communicating the uniqueness and character of human beings.
