Product Description

Funny, gritty stories from the front-line of everyday living. In SMILE a Brighton waitress meets the most important man from her past - and introduces themes that run all through this brilliant collection: women's anxiety to please, their hunger for love and the massive compromises everybody makes. From within the familiar territory of ante-natal classes and Volvo cars, estate agents' placards and threadbare marriages, Deborah Moggach plots a map of modern relationships that is unerringly acute, stylish and compellingly entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Stories 4 Jan 2014

I misread that this book is lots of short stories. Saying that they are easy quick reads that are intriguing. I enjoyed them. Now reading Heartbreak Hotel which is getting good.

Read the first story and passed it to my wife! Quite amusing but not really my 'cup of tea' unfortunately.

4.0 out of 5 stars A veritable smorgasbord of short stories for the reader to indulge 19 Aug 2013
By rosie may - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short Stories are very hard to pull off as I think they can be boring or trite, however in "Smile" this collection of short stories all have a twist or unexpected surprise which catches the reader a little unawares. Keep this book with you for when you don't want the long haul of a huge book to read and you will be kept entertained with an array of totally refreshing stories that will tantalise your reading buds. My favourites were "Horse Sense"( a sad & bittersweet story) "The Wrong Side"(a little dark) and "Monsters" (thought provoking)
