Description:
Originally published: UK: Viking, 2015.
A charming spinster with kleptomaniac tendencies, a wealthy engineer in love with his wife's cleaning lady, a middle-aged woman with an imaginary boyfriend and a homeless man who can foretell death. Scratch the surface of ordinary lives and nothing is quite as it seems. Salley Vickers' short stories offer fleeting glimpses into strangers' lives. These are normal people teetering on a crisis point, about to be ambushed by an unsought epiphany - or an unwanted home truth. Perfectly crafted, understated yet unforgettable, these tales are, above all, a celebration of the variety, complexity and peculiarity of life.
