Product description

Book Description

With unnerving insight and wit, this collectin of short stories present an essential guide to post-modern romance, to the vagaries of city life and to a chronically self-absorbed generation whose love affairs are never as good as the last movies they've seen.

Synopsis

Emily Perkins captures perfectly the intense world of love, art and waitressing in this debut collection of short stories. She brings modern life into harsh and comic focus with a cinematic vision for character and dialogue and a cast of young and painfully vulnerable metropolitans. 'A stunning first collection: addictive, smart, scary, wise and profoundly funny. Perkins has the enviable Alice Munro knack of crafting tiny stories with the scope of novels, characters who convince within a paragraph, dialogue which stings with its unresolved sadness and comfortless truths' - Julie Myerson.
