Format: Paperback
Steve Martin's small but perfectly formed novel makes the very ordinary seem interesting. The story follows the ups and downs of shopgirl Mirabelle's romantic life, exposing her loneliness despite having two men in her life.

While she struggles to find the right antidepressants, and to pay the rent for her viewless apartment on a meagre salary, Mirabelle finds herself falling in love with a rich older man who seems to offer the answers to a lot of her problems. Having someone to look after her immediately makes the world a brighter place - but Mirabelle isn't prepared for the confusion to come. 'Shopgirl' is a tender and darkly humourous love story tracking the pain caused by misunderstanding. I gulped it down in one sitting and will be looking out for Steve Martin's other books.

A sensitive, moving story and the writing is touching, but also witty and sometimes razor-sharp. I cannot recommend it enough. Please give it a try.

PS I couldn't stand Steve Martin the actor before I read this, so I was negatively biased to start with... I am amazed at the high quality of his writing.
