Publisher's Synopsis

Discover Man Booker winner Anne Enright's first collection of short stories.

'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.

'Quirky, subversive, original wit and an imaginative linguistic fluency' Irish Times
