'The Overcoat' is a short story about a government clerk who has his precious new overcoat stolen. No-one seems willing to help him retrieve his prized possession, a fact that continues to concern him even when he is beyond the grave. 

This new edition is accompanied by artwork from Sarah Dobai, who has taken a series of photographs of shop windows in London and Paris to reflect upon the story's preoccupation with material desire and illusion.
