Synopsis

The stories in Anne Fleming's new collection are marked by high intelligence, playfulness and a crackling sense of humour. If pressed, Fleming will say that the stories explore how love and disappointment, and humour and resilience, are twinned.

"Sentence by sentence, Anne Fleming is one of the finest writers I've ever read"The Globe and Mail

"[Fleming's] evenhanded, sharp-eyed and often hilarious narratives traverse the frenzied chaos of urban life with ease and precision"The Georgia Straight
