Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Novels and stories being such different beasts, it’s rare to find a writer gifted at both…Tessa Hadley deftly handles any length, as her outstanding new collection confirms..” Amazon.com editorial review
“Every story in this very English collection by New Yorker contributor Hadley juxtaposes the promise, even magnificence, of a rich inner life against the disappointing banality of everyday existence.” Publishers Weekly
“Hadley’s command of the telling detail, the unspoken riposte, and the subtle interpersonal struggles that fuel everyday human actions infuses this collection with both saucy fire and sobering fatalism.” Booklist
