Product description

Review

** 'An unexpected combination of romp and classical: thought-provoking, sassy and comforting (Ali Smith ** 'With her effortless prose and unflinching eye, Samson dips beneath the surface of apparently contented, even blessed lives and the result is compelling, disturbing and moving’)

Maggie O'Farrell ** 'These intertwined, silken stories deftly expose the heart-sickness behind so many of the burnished surfaces of contemporary life (John Banville)

This is a masterly book and it's impossible not to start all over again the minute you finish reading it. More than simply a series of exquisitely crafted miniatures, it encompasses many of the larger delights of a full-length novel. Polly Samson loves these people, describing them with incisive wit and generous compassion. (Sue Gainsford, FT)

Samson's interlinked stories reveal turbulent emotional truths ... Samson's tone is pitch perfect, as bracing and invigorating as her seaside setting. (Marie Claire)
