Product description


`queen of domestic wryness'
--The Guardian

"...Simpson's art is...refined for being so seemingly effortless, unforced and entertaining." --New Statesman

"This collection is as brilliant as her previous ones." --The Lady

"The collection as a whole is carefully organised, with the lightest piece butting against the most death-haunted one..." --Guardian

"if its subject matter is undeniably uncheery, it is written with a lightness of touch - and a deep but understated poeticism' --Telegraph

One of the most sharply funny writers in England today -- The Times Literary Supplement

'Simpson's gifts are a lyrical vocabulary, an authoritative form, a special funny-sad quality and a subtlety of understanding' -- The Times

'When it comes to contemporary maestros of the short-story form, Helen Simpson is up there with Alice Munro...' -- Sunday Times

Book of a Lifetime. -- Independent

Short story credits In Flight Entertainment. -- Sunday Times magazine

Book Description

'A masterful contemporary exponent of the genre. Simpson now deserves to be compared with Flannery O'Connor and Alice Munro' Observer
