Review:

"Few writers give me such consistent pleasure" (Zadie Smith)

"She has such great psychological insights into human beings, which is rare. She is one of the best fiction writers writing today" (Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie)

"Truly absorbing... a masterful yet understated read... More please" (Sunday Express)

"Brilliant... Hadley's style is as discreet as good tailoring" (Independent)

"The stories sparkle...Hadley is fascinating for the way she admits a fantasy or a missed chance can be more significant than the actual events that shape a life" (Metro)

From the Publisher:

After just two novels, Accidents in the Home and Everything Will Be All Right, Tessa Hadley has established herself as one of the most perceptive and entertaining writers in Britain, ‘a rare and startling gem’ whose writing is ‘fantastically subtle, absorbing and insightful’ (Guardian). Sunstroke is her first collection of stories.
