Charlie Rich once sang that no-one knows what goes on behind closed doors. As you walk along any street in any town you will see window after window, all at one point or another closed off by curtains. To contemplate what goes on behind those curtains offers some of us the chance to exercise our imaginations. Is it a happy house? Or one blighted by domestic tyranny? Is it the stage for romance or for tragedy? Whatever your secrets, however you make things work, if you don't draw the curtains when you've got the light on, you'll get people like me taking a good old look at what's going on in there. And you'd be surprised what we think you're up to.
Behind the Curtains Paperback edition by David Charnick
