Product description

Review

'[A] finely observed debut... There is a touch of dark Southern gothic in Lawson's world, but it is lit by the sheer intelligence of her writing and her x-ray eye for the inner dynamics of relationships'-- Sunday Times Culture

'Studded with gems [...] the collection proves Lawson is a young writer to watch, with even its slightest pieces, containing killer lines'-- Literary Review

'Lawson's stories, at once forensic and mysterious, show how insistent our wants can be and how hard they are to understand'-- New Statesman

'A tremendous intelligence paradoxically amplified by being constrained by intense emotion; Lawson is a distinctive, and extraordinary, writer' ---- Rivka Galchen
