  A Picador Paperback Original
 
Tessa Hadley's stories trace the currents of desire, desperation, and mischief that that lie hidden inside domestic relationships.
 
A mother hears her son's confession that he's cheating on his girlfriend; a student falls in love with a professor and initiates an affair with a man who looks just like him. A boy on a seaside vacation realizes that a grown-up woman is pressing dangerously close.

Book Description Picador, 2007. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Miraculous. . .Deft and resonant, [these stories] encapsulate moments of hope and humiliation in a kind of shorthand of different lives lived. Hadley never fails to surprise."-- The New York Times Book Review "Tessa Hadley's gift as a writer is so considerable that her characters' revelations and predicaments linger in the mind long after her narrative has darted off in other directions."--Alice Traux, The New York Times Book Review "A warm novel that follows the contours of four generations of a family and, in the end, shows us ourselves."--Associated Press on Everything Will Be All Right "Marvelously intricate . . . Hadley's intelligence puts her in the company of Carol Shields and Doris Lessing."-- The Boston Globe on Accidents in the Home. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0312425996
