As Norman Gorstby is sitting at dusk, on a park bench in London, a young man sits on the bench and curses, leading Gortsby to ask him about his situation. The man tells him that he was from another city and due to a series of events, was lost without a place to stay at night and without a penny in his pocket.
What begins as an internal monologue and a reflective commentary on dusk by Gortsby quickly turns into a gripping narrative about the young man’s almost incredulous story and a cake of soap which was ‘the only convincing touch in his story’.
Listen to this classic H H Munro story to find out if the man was being honest or simply spinning a yarn to fill his pockets.
