In this stellar collection of short stories, Helen Simpson explores independence, solitude, marriage, sex and babies with her characteristic blend of comedy and lyricism. Here are tales of young love - successful or thwarted, intense or comic.

From a wedding day for one, through the knotty problems of babies, their conception, arrival and impact on adult lives, to a Lothario receiving his just deserts, and the title story, where a schoolgirl's erotic daydreams during her Shakespeare homework go on to produce blushes of horror.

Product Description:
This second collection of short stories by the author of the prize-winning Four Bare Legs in a Bed, recently nominated as one of Granta magazine's Best Young British Novelists, continues to explore ideas of independence, solitude, marriage, sex and babies.
Review:
"Of all contemporary writers, Simpson has the most honest, the most authentic voice" (The Times)

"Her stories can be read quickly, knocked back in a single, grateful gulp like an aperitif, or savoured with a slow, cool intoxication... She is Katherine Mansfield's natural successor" (Observer)

"Biting wit...has me laughing aloud" (Pat Barker)

"Simpson's wit defies formulaic feminism or, indeed, any other -ism... Very, very funny" (Evening Standard)

"Full of good jokes, wonderfully alert to irony and the possibilities of language" (Jonathan Coe)
