Three outstanding novellas, depicting with a heart-wrenching honesty the limits of human love. Against setting that range from the alleyways of Paris to the northern plains of Montana and the suburbs of Chicago, Richard Ford dramatises the impasses and abysses that exist in all romantic relationships. Capturing men and women at defining moments of truth - whether during seismic arguments, or simply in the course of everyday life - Ford affirms yet again his reputation as one of the great American writers of our time.

This is perfect. Richard Ford has one of those voices that stays in your mind long after the play button stops. Listening to the author tell you his story "Jealous" is a wonderful way to spend 90 minutes.
