Capital Tales

By Brian Fawcett

The survivors and victims inhabiting the pages of Capital Tales dash forever the romantic myth that our peerless captains of industry are guiding us through the mists of progress to a shining land of prosperity. Tough, uncompromising portraits of people discovering the illusions they live by, the stories culminate in a confrontation between the narrator and a nineteenth-century British philosopher—a meeting of minds which leaves no meaning of the word “capital” unexamined.
