It's the summer of 1989, a time of global flux just before the collapse of the Berlin wall and of South Africa's Apartheid. Two women see something uncanny in the skies over west London, an alien sighting whose consequences cannot be predicted. A companion volume to the author's critically lauded Daimonic Reality, The Good People is a modern fairy tale that dramatises the interpenetration of revelation and delusion, the natural and the supernatural, worldliness and sanctity - intimating that all our humdrum lives are shadowed by the alien dimension of myth.
