Publisher's Summary

In these short stories, it's the ordinary things that turn out to be most extraordinary. Two sisters quarrel over an inheritance; a child awake in the night explores her home; a housekeeper caring for an elderly man uncovers secrets from his past. The stories focus in on crucial moments of transition. Small acts have large consequences, and some of them reverberate across decades. The real things that happen to people and the accidents that befall them are every bit as mysterious as their longings and their dreams.

Critic Reviews

"Tessa Hadley has become one of this country's great contemporary novelists...possessed of a psychological subtlety reminiscent of Henry James, and an ironic beadiness worthy of Jane Austen."( Guardian)
"Few writers give me such consistent pleasure." ( Zadie Smith)
