Though best known as the author of a series of brilliant novels, here Higgins turns his writerly gifts to work for the radio. This collection includes ten plays broadcast in England and Ireland between 1973 and 1990, which have had a significant influence both on Higgins’s later fiction and on the medium itself. Higgins himself refers to Darkling Plain: Texts for the Air as his last great unpublished work, making it a landmark in the career of one of the finest writers working in the English language today.
