Review:

'Bitingly and immediately enjoyable and exquisitely written.' GUARDIAN 'Gardam's stories are both acutely observed social commentaries and voyages into the absurd.' TLS 'It is perfect; one cannot imagine how any master of short stories- Chekhov, Katherine Mansfield, V.S Pritchett- could have better realised its theme... All these stories show the same accomplishment and readability.' SPECTATOR
