From the Back Cover:

'You won't find a finer collection of short love stories anywhere in the land. *****' Jockey Slut

A chance encounter prompts an aging professor to regret a lifetime of wasted opportunities; a beautiful wife tests her husband by making herself hideous; for the love of a girl, a boy turns himself into a violoncello... funny, magical and strange, in these seven short stories Dan Rhodes lays bare the pain and enchantment of love.

'Often macabre, always musical, Rhodes flirts with laugh-out-loud absurdity but stays in close contact with pathos... his arch, askew take on the heart's muddle flourishes.' Uncut

'Rhodes's stories blow through the cobwebs of a much-handled subject like fresh air.' Observer

'Extremely readable - thought-provoking as well as entertaining.' Times Literary Supplement

'The beauty of his writing is persuasive and his themes are universal.' The Times

'Is there a more innovative, but also intensely readable, writer than Dan Rhodes working in Britain today?' Big Issue
