Synopsis

'Elegant, scrupulously poised, always intelligent and, not least, original' Angela Carter

The characters in Anne Enright's fierce and witty first collection of stories stand at an oblique angle to society. Full of desire, but out of kilter, their response to a dislocated reality is mutinous, wild, unforgettable.
