"The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision . . . This is art that conceals art. I haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Reminiscent of Roald Dahl in their dark ironies, these tales of the emotional unexpected are perceptive, deftly written and droll." (Michel Faber)
"The people who inhabit these stories are funny, shocking, middle-class and sinister, the author's wacky imagination being the only constant we can always take for granted." (Alan Taylor The Scotsman)
A collection of short stories focusing on romantic encounters from the author of THE NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY
