In The Overcoat, a lowly government clerk’s life is briefly transformed by the extravagant purchase of a new coat. 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.
