Publisher Description

Named a Best Book of the Year by the New York Times Book Review, the San Francisco ChronicleKirkus Reviews, and the Washington Post Book World.

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Gathering and Actress, this is a collection of sharp, unpredictable short fiction about people struggling to connect in an increasingly disconnected world.

Yesterday’s Weather shows us a rapidly changing Ireland, a land of family and tradition, but also, increasingly, of organic radicchio, cruise-ship vacations, and casual betrayals. An artisan farmer seethes at the patronage of a former Catholic-school classmate, now a successful restaurateur; a bride cheats on her rich husband with an old college friend—a madman who refuses his pills, disappears for weeks on end, and plays the piano like a dream. These and other stories make up a volume that is “astonishing: moving, emotionally accurate, sly, and laugh-out-loud funny” (O, The Oprah Magazine).

“A dazzling collection.” —Time Out
