Product description


`Superbly crafted morality tales, such being Simpson's specialty. Her stories, like the best stories, give the impression of being the last word on the subject, even if, or especially if, that word is enigmatic and open-ended. (She ends her stories beautifully, and never quite the same way twice.) We are told that people these days no longer read short stories. However, they should make an exception for Simpson, and are quite right to do so.' --Guardian

`These are punchy little stories, full of hidden woe and impending doom.' --The Scotsman

`There are more typical stories in this volume about marriages in decline, infidelity and friendship, and they work wonderfully. But it is the stories about climate change that may have you pacing the house at night, switching off your electrical equipment.' --Sunday Times

`The sharpness and poeticism of this collection of short stories will feel familiar to Simpson's admirers.'

`Each story creates a whole world, beautifully described and instantly recognisable. Simpson is a writer who has honed her skills in her chosen area of the short story so well that you know you are reading a master.' --The Bookbag

`Short-story maestro Simpson has produced a collection that asks: are we really going to watch our planet heat up and die? The answer, her finely controlled tales suggest, is yes.'
--The Sunday Times

Book Description

'A masterful contemporary exponent of the genre. Simpson now deserves to be compared with Flannery O'Connor and Alice Munro' Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
