It looks like any church window – except it’s not in a church. And the names and characters depicted are not apostles or saints – but writers. In the top left, Homer. Below him, Chaucer.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there.

He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
