Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "A wry, crackly voice...Fine, funny, and very moving pictures of contemporary life from a writer of enormous talent." The New York Times
  • "Brisk, ironic...scalpel-sharp...A funny, cohesive, and moving collection of stories." The New York Times Book Review
  • "Sharp, flicking, on-target...the work of a sorcerer apprentice. Moore casts a cruel, mischievous spell." Vanity Fair
  • "Trenchant, funny tales...Moore is much more than another chronicler of the chronically out-of-sync relations between American men and women. She writes with urgency and pace." People
  • "Astonishing...Moore is so good at trapping each moment in perfect, precise detail, so masterful at cynicism and wryness that her moments of poignancy and sweetness catch us completely off guard." San Francisco Chronicle
