Bibliographical note

This is Chapter 42 of an international handbook that draws together many of the leading voices working in narrative inquiry. 'The door and the dark' is the only full and proper narrative in the handbook. It relates a fictional viva in which issues of postmodernity, layered accounts and Derridean deconstruction, and ethical reliability are considered. It is an example of fictional ethnography, and the latest of a series of such fictions I have published since 2006 (see the Routledge journal, Changing English).
