9780099520993: Yesterday's Weather: Includes Taking Pictures and Other Stories

First publication of a new collection of the Booker Prize-winner's stories including those from her most recent hardback 'Taking Pictures'.

In Yesterday's Weather, Booker Prize-winning author Anne Enright presents a series of deeply moving stories about women stirred, bothered, or fascinated by men they cannot understand, or understand too well. Enright's characters are haunted by the ghosts of the lives they might have led - lit by new flames, old flames, and flames that are guttering out. A woman's one night stand is illuminated by dreams of a young boy on a cliff road, another's is thwarted by an swarm of somnolent bees. A pregnant woman is stuck in a slow lift with a tactile American stranger, a naked mother changes a nappy in a hotel bedroom, and waits for her husband to come back from the bar. This collection includes some of Enright's best loved stories as well as her latest works. These are sharp, vivid tales of loss and yearning, of surrender to responsibilities or to unexpected delight; all share the unsettling, dislocated reality, the subversive wit and awkward tenderness that have marked Anne Enright as one of our most thrillingly gifted writers.

Review:

"Enright deals beautifully with the modern world ... blood, guts, and heart-stopping beauty" ( Independent)

"At the top of her form, she is remarkable" (Jane Shilling The Times)

"Shockingly beautiful and painfully funny" ( Observer)

"The quality of the writing should help to explain Enright's having won the 2007 Man Booker Prize ... single lines and paragraphs are so well crafted, with such salty, pleasantly brutal sensibility, that these stories function like beguiling advertisements for Enright's novels. After sampling Taking Pictures, those who, like me, have not yet read The Gathering will likely move her Man Booker winner nearer to the top of the pile beside the bed" (Lionel Shriver Daily Telegraph)

"She's a sphinx, an alchemist, a literary witch who sticks a spell on you. Angela Carter and Ali Smith can do this too.... buy it, read it, it isn't realism, it's music" ( Scotsman)

Review:

`This short story collection gives those new to her oeuvre a chance to delve into gems from her past...precociously vibrant'
