'You won't want these stories to end' Reese Witherspoon
'Perfect miniatures in deadpan prose' Guardian
A dazzling, smart and razor-sharp story collection by Curtis Sittenfeld, Sunday Times bestselling author of Eligible and American Wife.
The theme that unites these stories is how even the cleverest people tend to misread others, and how much we all deceive ourselves.
Sharp and tender, funny and wise, they show Sittenfeld’s knack for creating real, believable characters that spring off the page, while also skewering contemporary mores with brilliant dry wit.
'DO-OVER', ONE OF THE STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION, WAS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 SUNDAY TIMES EFG SHORT STORY AWARD.
