Synopsis

The first ever story collection from the inimitable Lionel Shriver

'Genius' Stylist

'Phenomenal' Observer

'Brilliant' The Times

In her first ever story collection, Lionel Shriver illuminates one of the modern age's most enduring obsessions: property.

A woman creates a deeply personal wedding present for her best friend; a thirty-something son refuses to leave home; a middle-aged man subjugated by service to his elderly father discovers that the last place you should finally assert yourself is airport security.

This landmark publication explores the idea of "property" in both senses of the word: real estate, and stuff. Immensely readable, it showcases the biting insight that has made Lionel Shriver one of the most acclaimed authors of our time.
