Presents a collection of stories. In this title story, a septuagenarian nun resolutely invades the narrator's college writing workshop with an incredible saga; a seasoned Hollywood moviemaker uncovers a 25 year old flame he never knew he'd harboured; another child is forced into a harrowing cross-country escape; and more.

Review:

"A master at examining subtly, from a different angle each time, the tensions that arise in long-term relationships" (The Times)

"Russo here confirms that he is equally skilled at shorter fiction that engagingly and shrewdly achieves through subtle humour exactly what it sets out to do" (Irish Times)

"Russo has more than a dash of style and an almost infallible technique" (Times Literary Supplement)

"This volume is the work of a consummate storyteller...his writing displays a warmth of wit and humour, along with an ability to inject drama into a narrative" (Irish Independent)

Book Description:

'He is brilliant...one of the more beguiling chroniclers of his times' - The Times
