Deborah Eisenberg is almost unmatched in her mastery of the short story form. In this, her seventh collection, she demonstrates her virtuosic abilities in precisely distilled, unflinchingly honest studies of human connection and disconnection. From a group of friends whose luxurious Manhattan sublet becomes a front-row seat to the catastrophe of 9/11; to the Roman holiday of a schoolteacher running away from the news of her ex-husband's life-threatening illness; to the too painful love of a brother for his schizophrenic sister, Eisenberg evokes painful and tender truths, both poetic and deeply political.

'The stories are, in their masterly crosshatching of light and dark, concentrated bursts of perfectionThe Times

Wonderful . . . written with a ruthless, compassionate eye and a subtle humour' Guardian

Further confirms her reputation as one of the most imaginative and exquisitely perceptive of today's short story writers' Scotland on Sunday

'She makes you smile as much as she haunts with stark truths . . . In the US, many people consider Eisenberg to be up there with Alice Munro, the female monarch of the short-story form. It's time the UK considered putting her up there too Financial Times
