Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 033037334X, Paperback)Following on from her award-winning first novel, "Trumpet", comes a collection of superlative stories. In true Kay style, these small masterpieces cover a great deal of emotional and narrative terrain, from an immaculate observation of the female physiognomy to the bewilderment of the elderly; from silent hidden love to a lifetime reminiscence of an immigrant's England. Warm and tender, frightening and funny, these stories confirm the arrival of a major storyteller. "A stunner. I am heartbroken to have finished it" - Ali Smith. "The beauty of Kay's stories is in how much they continue to resonate long after finishing" - "Time Out". "These pieces contain - and ultimately liberate - definitively human ordinariness, a rigmarole of isolation and love, fidelity and betrayal, noise and silence, birth and death" - "Guardian". "One of the liveliest talents of her generation" - "Sunday Telegraph".
