Told from the perspective of various women the stories are funny, sad, introspective and sometimes quite dark.
The characters were very real and life like. A teenager vowing never to turn into an adult like those around her, a woman buying totally impractical clothes at an exorbitant price at a shop so exclusive that you need a password to get into, a woman with three children taking life one day at a time hoping that she or things around her would change.
A collection of short stories which seemed ideal for me in between various odd jobs around the house!
This sounds like something I might like, Mystica. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm not fond of 'chick-lit' (so-called) but this seems to be something a little different.ReplyDelete
Yes, a good in-between book.ReplyDelete
I read one of her short stories, a set in an imagined version of England after a cataclysmic event destroyed the social structure. I would happily read more of her storieddReplyDelete
