Review:

"A seemingly effortless performance... the writing glides along, elegantly dropping details that suggest a whole way of life" (Phil Baker The Sunday Times)

"Powerful, involving, wide-ranging collection" (Gerard Woodward Guardian)

"With a keen ear for dialogue and restless changes of scene, she shows desire and disappointment to be universal, timeless emotions" (Nicholas Blincoe Sunday Telegraph)

"Tremain's stories offer an elegant snapshot of other people's lives that leaves an emotional impact long after you close the book" (Michelle Margherita Stylist)

"Even in the most melancholy stories, Tremain delivers slivers of hope or humour to temper the tragedies. Fallibility is leveling rather than depressing and this collections highlights with subtlety and grace just how human it is to get things wrong" (Christian House Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A seductive new collection from 'a magnificent story-teller' ( Independent on Sunday)
