Review:

"The stories collected in Married Love tend to announced themselves with a crash ... before resolving into quieter reflections, like musical overtures in which strings follow brass. Whether it is in examining the mellowing of a marriage in the title piece, or recounting the progress of a one night stand ("In the Cave"), Hadley writes of ordinary lives with a gracefulness unequalled among her peers" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Occasionally – very occasionally – a book feels like a gift, something unexpected, exhilarating, life-enhancing. Tessa Hadley’s second collection of short stories is such a book" ( The Times)

"One of the most subtle and sublime contemporary writers" ( Vogue)

"The most perceptive chronicler since George Eliot of avid, unworldly young women" ( Guardian)

"Hadley is a writer of exceptional intelligence and skill Only Alice Munro and Colm Toibin, among all the working short story writers I’m aware of, are so adept at portraying whole lives in a few thousand words. With Married Love, Hadley joins their company as one of the most clear-sighted chroniclers of contemporary emotional journeys" ( Observer)

Book Description:

Tessa Hadley has joined the ranks of Posy Simmonds, Helen Simpson, Colm Toibin, Katherine Mansfield and Rachel Cusk as a national treasure.
