Full of tenderness and compassion, this dazzling collection celebrates our humanity in all its pettiness and glory.A STYLIST Best Books for Autumn titleFeatured in the Sunday Times Guide to CulturePraise for CURTIS SITTENFELD-'You won't want these stories to end' REESE WITHERSPOON'Perfect miniatures in deadpan prose' GUARDIAN'Clear-eyed and compulsive' MAIL ON SUNDAY
