An award-winning short story from the 2011 Commonwealth Prize Best First Book.It's not every day you receive an email at work from someone claiming to be 'the' Charles Darwin. But when David Leon emails back, little does he suspect that before long he would be heading to Ecuador, or indeed that he would be mugged by a man wielding an iguana like a sawn-off shotgun. But what has David really gone in search of? This wry, whimsical story is refreshingly different and thought-provoking.One of the stories from a superb collection of which one reviewer commented: 'Simply the best new collection of short stories I have read in an age.'
